SOURCE: rear brake replacement
ok listen to me closely! There is an adjuster on ford aspires i cant remember if its the top or bottom but you will see the part im talking about. This piece sits directly between the brake shoes. This has been adjusted out and made longer which is normal with worn shoes! You need to twist the adjuster all the way in with new brake shoes. This part your gonna be looking for has a little round wheel on it with tiny little jaggers all the way around that wheel. It is made this way so that once it gets where its suppose to be it cant back off. Self adjusters is what you need to be looking for so if you cant find on your car google it "self adjusters for rear brake shoes" that will fix you right up, just remember run that little feller all the way in. Then that brake drum will slide right on there for ya

The hand brake hardly ever needs ajusting. See your hand brake mechanincly spreads your rear brake shose inside the drum. Therefore just replace your rear shoes and make sure there ajusted right and you should have no more problems with that part of your car. PS make sure you put some 3M paste on the contact points on your backing plate to avoid a squeak in the near future.

when you pull the hub off take a picture of the brakes so you can see all the parts, so you can tell where everthing goes back together.
