When I put my car into reverse, I hear a rough noise coming from the back. I was wondering could this be my drums or rear brakes.

a rough noise? could you elaborate? on my 78 i hear the u joints tighten up when i shift into reverse but thats just a quiet clunk.

it could be play in the rear end. you may want to check that... just put the transmission in neutral with the engine off, and turn the driveshaft, it shoudlnt be able to turn much either way. if it does, then you may have a problem
