Yeah I changed my rear shoes - which wasn't needed cos the self adjuster seized Quite easy to do, although you need to take out the bearings which isn't hard - just messy. 15 minute job if you know what you are doing

just make sure u take note of how it goes back together ands its easy

it took me about 2 and a half hrs to change one side of rear shoes and about 20 mins to do the other side.

pointer, take both drums off, do one at a time and use one side as a pattern to copy.

At least an hour if your doing the cylinders not just the shoes as you need to bleed it up afterwards as well. Will take you longer still if you snap the pipe off trying to undo it!
