Default clicking coming from rear drum brake

what might cause a clicking noise from a drum brake? it only occurs when the brakes are in use and it varies with speed.

All kinds of springs/bars/shoes could be causing it. Only way to find out is to open them up.

Is it only from one side? Open up both and compare everything.
