I would buy complete new backing plates, with shoes and magnets and all.
Your drums houls be ok, by do have them checked for scoring on both the braking surface as well as the surface that the magnet glides on.
Your brake size should be 12x2

You can buy them thru several wholesalers. You have a choise of Dexter or kelsey Hayes. either is ok. Should not be over $35 per backing plate plus shipping. Remember to check your bearings and repack them while you are at it.

Hi,
Go with Dexter. Check your internet for local Dexter distributors. Dexter list all their distributors on the web.

Many auto parts stores can get them also , not the autozone type , the kind that mechanics go to . Try a Napa or the like . Good luck
