you are probably going to have to back the shoes off to get the drums off. theres probably lip on the drums that are holding them on to the shoes.

Thanks for the input guys. I just really had to smack it hard with hammer for it to budge. . Got it all taken apart and back together and finally got rid of that damn squeak.
Thanks for your help
