Hi,
You should have rear brake shoes correct? Why are you replacing them so early in life, do you have like 150,000 miles?

OK Great, To be honest rear shoe replacement is difficult with many parts and springs. Do only one side at a time so you have a reference to fall back on if your confused. It helps to purchase shoe spring tools at you local parts store to aid in removing and installing the springs. Other then that here is the factory procedure. Have a great Holiday!
