As opposed to what, the worst way? Are you running into a problem? Is this your first attempt at performing a brake job? If you're just replacing shoes there are some tricks and hints I can share. Due to the age and mileage you should consider also replacing the hardware. All of the springs and hold-down hardware are available from the auto parts stores in a kit for around 15 to 20 bucks. Buy the smallest tube or bottle of high temperature brake grease. You might not be able to buy the shoes until you take one side apart to check their size. Sometimes there are two choices. Holler back when you're ready to proceed.
