84 Cutlass supreme rear brakes help

I just bought a 84 cutlass about 2 weeks ago. Drives and runs good but it started making a god aweful grinding noise from the rear. It came from the driver side rear drum brake. I took the hub off and have a brake shoe came out, a spring, and 2 other things I have no ideal what thay are. Can anyone help me with this to get it fixed. I know Ill need shoes and new springs, and those other things that fell out look like some kinda adjuster. I've done several disc brake but never fooled with drums. Please help.

If you take apart the other side it will be easy to re ~figure out what all fell apart,
it is the same~ but opposite

On drum brakes there are 2 different shoes one has less friction surface than the other there for it is "smaller"

The "smaller" one always goes to the front

You will need to look @ the wheel cylinders make sure the bleeders are not frozen up and not leaking fluid & get a complete spring & nail kit for both sides .

Next you will need to make sure the E brakes cables are not frozen up .

Same with the adjusters.

You will need to inspect the drums for damage have them measured.

I don't have pictures of that particular set up but the Chevy truck is very similar.

Post back with any more questions you might have.

The bottom spring and the round thing beneath it is what fell out. The round thing beneath was grinded all to hell.

I'll be here some where.

I guess I need to write a "how to " for brakes in the WIKI.

Nuthin there!

Be care ful take your time & think safety 1st be careful of the springs & stuff they can launch. hand & eye protection a must & use a liquid to clean the area do not blow it around


Remember do one side @ a time {sometimes I still have to do that } the broke side 1st.

Really good once I got the first wheel done. That grinding sound I told ya about was the bottom adjuster. It was just laying there when I took it apart...lol Drives great now and Thanks for your help.
Hope you have a great Christmas!
