Buy the backing plates complete with the brakes and magnets installed.
Assuming the drums are in good shape and you have the knowledge to repack your wheelbearings....
The additional work is as simple as R&R of four bolts on each backing plate, the cutting and reconnecting of two wires behind each backing plate, and adjusting the brake when finished.
