Rear drums

Okay, I have replaced my front rotor and pads, I still have yet to touch the rear drums. I need help understanding our single spring drums. What's the best way to approach them and change the shoes correctly!? thanks.

Take off both wheels with the rear jacked up, pull both drums off and one side at a time disassemble them, it helps to have a second pair of hands for some of the parts. Whenever you're stuck just look at the opposite side. First side took me about an hour second 20 minutes after you get the hang of it a bit. Still a total pain in the ass.
