1966 SWB Step Rear Brake ID

Just finished up replacing rotors, calipers, lines etc on the front brakes which a PO had upgraded to 70's era 5-lug disks. Got parts for a '77 and they worked just fine.

Now I'm getting started on the drums in the rear which look like they've also been swapped at some point to 5-lugs. I don't know if the PO used parts from the same source as the front or not, so I'm looking for advice on what parts I need to be looking for to do a rebuild on the hardware.

The markings on the front of the drums are:
MAX DIA 11.09

A search for that number pulls up an eBay listing for 67-72 CHEVY TRUCK NOS Rear Brake Drums 3989541. Since that's the only result, besides a posting here about mismatching drums on a '71, I wanted to see if anyone has any further info on these.

Here are some pictures:

Markings on 5-lug drum on rear-end, "3989541". Also has marked, "MAX DIA 11.09"
