Have a 1998 sunfire and the sping block is keeping the cylinder from getting removed, should the hub assy be removed first?

Do you
have the same problem?

Remove rear brake shoes. See REAR BRAKE SHOES. Disconnect inlet tube nut and line. Plug opening in line to prevent fluid loss and contamination.
