Get all new springs/hardware, i think they were fairly cheap. Have the drums turned somewhere so they are in good shape. And don't get cheap shoes, i got a lower level of shoes at Napa and they ended up having to go through 3 different boxes of em to get me a decent set. Only reason i did that was because i had to get shoes to drive the truck, and at the time my axle seals were leaking so i was planning on ripping them out shortly anyways. 13k miles later the leak is non-existent and i'm still running the cheaper shoes.
Also, drum brakes are pretty much universal all across the board so just google write-ups/how-to's for drum brake re-builds, and it will pretty much crossover to the OBS brakes.
