I am going to be replacing the brakes on the wagon but am slightly confused by all the different options! RockAuto has all sorts of different pads, some say for sedan, some wagon, some heavy duty/police/taxi. The wagon has the 11" rear drums.
I want to get something with better stopping power, not so worried about dust, keeping the steel wheels and wire covers.

Looking at the Power Stop Z23 kit.  But it shows for 9.5" rear drum...

Maybe something else?

Brake work the past couple days. Changed out the crusty rotors, installed new pads, installed new wheels bearings, changed the front flex hoses and flushed the lines.

Looks like the car had a full brake job not long before it was parked...
