Just do one side at a time and use the one you haven't done yet as a reference. Jack up and place on jack stands and remove both wheels and drums and simply do one sid leaving the other side together to look at .JMO
Spray down the bolts and the lines on the wheel cylinders if it's been awhile since they have been off.

X2 for above. Here's a couple of PDF pages that might help if you get stuck. The wheel cylinders will be bolted on, ignore the part about clips holding them on.

cleaning?

Brakes are done, (all your help was great) I know I can use carb cleaner on my drums to clean them, but my brake shoe (1) got some brake fluid on it, can I use carb cleaner on the shoe also? Then should I scuff my shoe a little? Advise, thanks again, Dana

spray it off with carb/ brake cleaner/ saturate it good and it'll clean the brake linings out. do not scuff. that will cause the shoes to grab
