Default 2002 L100 rear brake noise - drum recommendation?

After going to one national brake and muffer store with the "golden" touch to have a rear brake overhaul and having 6 months of right rear brake squealing after a brake job, countless returns to fix, then being sent to another store with better mechanics, I still cannot get rid of the squeal.

The second store just regreased the parts and the squeal stops for a few days.

The Saturn dealer mechanic who looked at it said to take it back to the place that did it and have them fix it.

I did that again and still not right.

I removed the drums myself last weekend, rechecked the springs and got the frequency of the squealling reduced.

It looks like they overturned the drum on the right rear is my best guess.

Drums are not that expensive online - I see Bendix, PBR and Centric advertised.

Anyone got a recommendation? Looks like I will be doing it myself since competent work is hard to find and the closest dealer is 40 minutes away and pricey.
Thanks ya'll.
