I have seen the shoes replaced before but never have done them myself. They seem pretty easy. But i do have a concern over my parking brake. Not sure if it in rear and in front. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

BTW: the e-brake should be OK.
I replace everything..........shoes, springs, adjusters and drums if they are out of spec.
Look for wheel cylinder leaks.
Be sure to clean the backing plates and apply a hi-temp grease to the area where the shoes rub it.
