[T3] grinding rear brakes


<x-flowed> Funny how I come out of lurk mode when something goes awry? I need some advice before taking the car out of service because I limited time this weekend for repairs.
There is an intermitant metalic rubbing sound coming from rear wheels with subsequant grinding when the brakes are applied. The clanking noise and grinding brakes come and go together. During these episodes the handbrake stops the car w/o the grinding. So far I haven't had the episode ending at my driveway, and jacking up the rear end tonight didn't reveal any unusual noises spinning the wheels. I can see lots of pad left looking through the adjuster ports. I replaced the drums and pads 3 years ago before Parma.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? The brakes still stop fine, but should I stop driving to work?
