Well, after working the 'look at the problem' time into my hectic life, I pulled the wheel again, pulled the drum, and didn't find any broken springs or anything. I can move the brake assembly up and down by hand and noticed that there are two springs, one on either shoe, with a post coming from the back of the assembly to the front and they seemed loose. I took the van to the brake shop and they say that the brakes are fine. It still rattles. Any other ideas? I think I will take it to another branch of the same chain for a second opinion.
