Brakes

This is probably the easiest repair out thre but it's been decade since I didn't just write a check. We ( my son and i) plan to tackle all four corners soon). I've noticed while we've had wheels off that the rear drums are insanely rusted. Any compelling reason to replace them?

Not if the insides look okay. Just sand them down or use a wire wheel. I then use high temp black paint on the outside, they last pretty well that way.

My rears were stuck on pretty good. I had to give her a few love taps with my bfh and they were trashed inside. Im expecting more of the same on my fronts but Im mildly incapacitated at the moment.

We will prob start with the fronts, but thanks for that input, I'll have a hammer ready along with a wire wheel. Update soon when we get a chance. New shoes going on tomorrow..
