Default Lug Nut Torque and Drum Brakes Question - 92 Honda Civic HB

Hi there, I was wondering what the correct torque for the wheel lug
nuts was in foot pounds for a 1992 Honda Civic Hatchback. I have
aluminum rims and a friend mentioned something along the lines of 100
- 120 ft. lbs. Also, I just ended up replacing my old drums & horse
pads since they ended up being really worn down with new ones. I was
wondering if the the mechanism inside that tightens or losens the
horseshoe pads against the drum would eventually end up tigthening
itself, or do I have to actually take off the tires, the drums and
spin the mechanism so that the shoes are snug/tight. Any
recommendations on how tight it should be? The rear brakes are
rattling and dont seem to hold in place when I lightly press the
brakes. I end up hearing a rumbling noise on my rear right side (from
the right rear wheel). They end up working properly once I press the
brake hard enough. If you could please let me know, then I would
really appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Torque on most Honda's 80 ft lbs
I do adjust the shoes out until there is a slight drag, the e-brake will be
3-4 clicks above the "resting" position. I slide the drum on 1'2 way and
turn the wheel a few clicks then slide the drum all the way on. I keep
repeating this until the drum has a slight drag, then it stays on.
As far as the noise, I'd be sure that everything I'd put together correctly
