VOLKSWAGEN BUS BRAKE DRUM PROBLEM

1969 Volkswagen Bus • 480,000 miles

Where can I get new or rebuilt front brake drums? Or how do I know if what I have already works.
The current ones after replacing the slave cylinders and shoes do not stop the van "on a dime" it slows then stops. I even sanded the drums.
Please help.

Are all the adjusters adjusted correctly?
