Am going in the direction of riveted, rather than bonded. Talked to some other guys and they told me about bonded brakes actually peeling and flopping around inside the drum. Don't need that occurring on the backside. While replacing the shoes, I am also going to replace the retracting spring and shoe hold down spring. They can get stretched and allow the shoes to lay up against the drum. Thanks for information. By the way, down in the County in which I live in Florida, we don't have any inspections. You can just imagine what is out on the roads. Sometimes scary and very unsafe.
