I am going to repair all brakes on my pick up. I opened the front brake drum and measured that the brake shoes was 2 1/2 . I have not opened rear drum yet because i have to move the car.  Is also the rear brake shoes 2 1/2  ? Thankful for answers.

Thomas, if your LST shows the same ticket number for front and rear brakes, and if your front brakes are 2-1/2" width, the rear brakes should also be 2-1/2" width.  There are also 3" listed, but that is 3" both front and rear.  

If you can take a rear drum off safely (on axle stands), I would confirm the rear brake shoe width before ordering new shoes.  I looked at Rock Auto, they have a surprisingly good supply of '73 I-H 1210 brake shoe sets, and the majority of 2-1/2" front brakes have 2-1/2" rear brakes.
