That depends, what are the rear brake problems? If the brake shoes are worn down, they can be replaced. Whenever replacing brake shoes make certain that you check the drum and have it "turned" if there are any ridges. If the brake shoes are out of adjustment but not worn out it might just be that your self-adjusting mechanism is faulty. Check that the star adjuster is not corroded and can turn properly. If there is any kind of fluid present it could be a wheel seal and the differential is leaking oil into the brakes, lubricant doesn't work well with brakes and will cause them to not work, or it could be a brake slave cylinder leaking brake fluid. It can also be caused by a faulty brake proportioning valve which you will find bolted to the inside of the frame directly behind the front drivers tire. If this is the problem i suggest paying someone to make the repair for you.
