    nothing wrong with the stock brakes. And the front brakes do most of the work anyway, so if you wanted to upgrade that is where I would start vs the rear.

    Facts I Got front brakes upgraded already. Could one of y’all attach a link if you don’t mind for drums/shoes. I’m a noob when it comes to no pads and am getting confused with do all the components come inside new drum? Responses much appreciated.

    New shoes, hardware kit, drums if you'd like (chances are you could get them turned).

    Something like these

    Maybe have the self adjuster kits just in case

    According to how bad of a shape, some parts can be simply cleaned up using same procedure as bellcrank repair.
