drum brakes, different spring? ('04 Cavalier)

('04 Cavalier, rear brakes) Instead of the since-God-was-a-boy hold-down spring/pin/cup system, these brakes have a single large, sort of 'W' shaped spring, spanning the two shoes, and passing over a half-round retainer at the base. Here's a picture (set of 2): http://www.bennettauto.com/store/drum-brake-hardware-kit-110539?filter_name 04|CHEVROLET|CAVALIER&engines#928%20L4-134ci%202.2L%20F%2FI&source=1&search_vehicle=true&gclid=CNSovIrmwcYCFUQSHwodad4CNg#.VZf8k1Il1-M
(As shown is upside-down from what's in the car.)
Question is, how to get the shoes off?
Thanks. G

Oops: wrong group. Though, if anyone knows, I'd still appreciate hearing.

Just a guess from looking at the parts picture , but have you tried lifting the spring tips out of the hole in the shoe and sliding the center bit off the retaining stud ?
