Your post is kind of misleading. When you say calipers, that tells us that you have disk brakes on the rear. Those are not adjustable. If you have drum brakes, you have wheel cylinders, not calipers.
I try not to rebuild anything related to the braking system anymore. It's much less troublesome and sometimes cheaper to just buy new parts and replace them, even the drums or rotors.
