I took the old shoe off but cannot get the new one on due to the spring on the cable

Just to add to this one pop up the ebrake boot loosen the nut for the ebrake arm cable till the end of the threads. That should give you the slack you need. Also remember when your done you will have to readjust your ebrake arm.
