280z brake rubbing

1977 280z with a brake issue. Rear passenger brake shoe pushes out and grinds on the side of the drum when I brake. Put a hardware kit on it, still doing it. Any ideas?

Is the drum worn unevenly with a taper from the inside to the outside of the brake shoe contact area?

Good question. At this point, any original brake drum - or even a replacement - could be worn way out of spec and/or warped.
