Take off the tire, remove the 4-13mm nuts on the backside of the wheel, pull the drum (and spindle) off as an assembly.
probably, if the pads are worn, or the rotors \ drums are scarred, there will be a grinding noise, plus you should be able to feel it through the brake pedal. most modern brake systems have quealers on the pads to tell you when they are getting worn and should be replaced. If you have a disc brake system, you should be able to inspect the rotors quite easily. Look for gouges in the surface of the rotor. If they are badly gouged, they should be turned or replaced.
The rotors in disc brakes and the drums are what the pads and shoes rub against to stop a car. With use, the surface can get grooves in it or a build up of rust scale; reducing the braking efficiency. To machine the rotors and drums, they are put on a lathe that cuts a new smooth surface on the face of each. Depending on wear, any given rotor or drum can probably be turned 2 or 3 times before needing to be replaced.
Drums. They might be more out there in the world, but you would have to do serious searching.

If you are inexperienced, you should not be messing around with the brake drums.
brake drums should pull off if not rusted on.
Remove the drums and take them to an auto parts store that has a brake drum lathe.

Begin by removing the break assembly from your 1994 Mercury. Tap on the rear brake drums with a hammer or mallet. The brake drums will become loose and will simply slide off.
