993 brake pad removal tech article

My rear pads sometimes squeal while stopping at low speeds.  The pad thickness is fine, so don't need to changen the pads.  I want to remove the OEM pads, clean the backs and apply an anti-squeal coating (CRC Brake Quiet or similar).  I have done this on a few German cars, Audi's etc.  I tried to remove the pads after compressing the caliper pistons and the pads seem hung-up somehow.  I think this may be due to the backer shims maybe hanging-up on the pistons.  Is there a good tech article that addresses the pad removal process?  Do I need to re-install the shims, or is the anti-squeal coat
