2002 Elantra VE rear brake shoes job.

I've done rear brake jobs on my civic and cavalier and was expecting the usual generalness of tackling the job. But when I came to remove the drums off on each end, the layout look similar but with
components I havent seen before.
For example, the bottom piece that looks like a bracket holding each shoe that has rounded bolts, and the brake line been on the rear end of the hub assembly.
How would I go about removing them with the car just on the jackstands.
Maybe a quick step by step guide just to get the assembly over and out of the hub if thats possible.
Thank you for the help.

I think that the spring design that Hyundai uses is the worst. I've removed drums from Hondas before using a clamp screwdriver, no problem. On my sister's Elantra, I can't get enough room to pull off the top spring. Not the greatest deign.

The piece at the bottom is the shoe anchor and won't come off the backing plate. Remove the wheel hub, the shoe hold-down springs, and the adjusting spring and lever. Once you've done that, you should be able to slide the shoes down and off the bottom anchor. Then remove the bottom spring and use the parking brake lever on the shoe to pry the adjuster rod off, making it easy to remove the upper spring.

Last night I changed the drums on my sister's 99 Elantra and have to say that they may be one of the worst deigned systems I have ever seen. It took me about 2 hrs to replace them because I had to be "creative" and figure how to get the pads off. For starters the two lock and springs that hold the pads together, couldn't they have had that as one piece? Honda has gone one step further and designed a clip which is only one piece for this. After pulling everything off as Hyundaitech (thanks for the bit of creativity) suggested I was able to slide the pads out and get the top spring off.
Out of all of the designs that I have seen, I think that top spring is the most poorly designed of the entire system. It shouldn't take this long to do this and Hyundai isn't making life easier for their own assembly lines either.
Luckily I had a look at the specs for the new Elantra and they are now going completely to discs for the front and back on all trims (something that I have been waiting to see on all models from every manufacturer).

You complain about replacing the pads (which implies disks as drum brakes use shoes) and then are happy that all four wheels will have disk brakes?

Matt,
    You call them shoes, and I called them pads....this topic was about drums was it not? To me they should call them all pads. What is a shoe, a different form of a brake pad. We really don't need smartasses in this newsgroup.

If you want to be understood, you need to use the correct terminology. Shoes are for drums, pads are for disks. It has been that way as long as I can remember.
If you don't like my comments, don't bother to read them or reply.

Matt has a point. Pads are part of a disk brake system and shoes are the equivalent in a drum brake system. When one is asking for advice, or passing the same along, proper terminology goes a long way towards understanding. Maybe this was one of the more obvious uses of the wrong term, but it's not always so obvious.
