Yup, sounds like you need to open up the drums and see how worn out the pads are. (and see if all the parts are still together).

ditto on the rear drums.
I bet you are going to see you should replace all hardware, shoes, and drums.
It's the best thing to do. (and cheap insurance)

If/when the brakes get overheated, the springs can lose their temper. They can still look good but already have lost most of their "springiness". I'd agree that maybe it's time for a complete brake overhaul. I always take the car to the car wash with high-pressure spray wands beforehand, to try to minimize the brake dust and dirt. Even with that, it can be a messy job -- not hard, just dirty.
