Drum brake pads

Is there any good pads that will stop well and last for our drum brakes in the back? What are the best? Thanks

For clarification, drum brakes use brake "shoes". Two performance shoes that I'm aware as being good are Mintex AF and Porterfield R4S. The R4S being more performance oriented of the two but also more expensive. These shoes work better if they matched to their respective front pad counterparts. You're pretty much assured of good/consistent brake bias when used in matched F/R sets.

Haven't seen any for the Focus. I'm guessing the Mintex AF's might be all you need. Check out Bat Inc. They sell both the pads and drums (if you need them) in a very affordable kit.
