Aftermarket/oem Rear Drums

Does anyone know any places to buy aftermarket entire drum/shoe for 2005 Cobalt 2.2L base?

its the 4 lug version if it matters?

either aftermarket (preferred) or even new OEM?

i want to do an entire brake job both the front and the rear.
for the front i'm putting powerslot rotors and hawk HPS pads.

also, are steel brake lines worth the $100 ish cost after shipping/tax? or should I just keep using the default ones?

Any auto part store, and don't waste your money on new brake lines unless there destroyed.

I have the stainless steel brake lines, and they dramatically increase stopping in my opinion. Like yeah that are worth it. I also have power slot rotors and red EBC pads. Stock drums in the rear but the rear brakes only account for 30% of braking power I've read. The only downside about the brake lines is they are a ***** to install since you have to bleed the brakes.

Drums don't do much for braking like ^ he said... Just paint them like a glossy black to clean them up and it'll look better.
