if you put a clamp on the shoes to stop them from pushing outward, you can have someone step on brakes to check for leaks. I would clean everything up real good first. I have never rebuilt cylinders. I think paying for them is easier. Plus if it still leaks, you'll have to buy one anyway. I like new with warranty, but don't know about anybody else.

clean the area with brake cleaner s;ip the drum back on pump the breaks lots and lots on times the remove the drump again and check for leaks, have you had a low level of brake fld ? if not I would not think they are leaking, they could be sticking, in that case I would just buy new ones , replace both sides not just one
