rear drum brake

i had a leak coming from my rear drum brake so when i took it apart, aside from finding a couple springs broken i found this (pictured) piece hanging from a wire, not hooked up to anything. I checked the other tire to compare and the other one was just hanging there too. what is this suppose to be hooked up to?

and comes to my other question about my one broke brake, can i just buy the springs i need that broke?

That cable has an EYE on one end. The eye goes at the top where the shoes pivot.. Then the cable wraps around a slider, then the end in your hand gets hooked on the adjuster bar

Is it a single rear wheel axle or dual? Dual rear wheel axle gets 3.5 and single gets 3
