Default Re: Rear Brakes Dragging

When you installed the rear drum did they slide on easy? Do you have slack in the parking brake cable? With the rear wheels off the ground, you should have been able to turn the wheel easily from either side. Was the width of the old shoes the same as the new ones? Was the drums the same dimension?

Pull off the drum and inspect the side (the side/edge that is next to the drum) of the shoe. If the side of the shoes show wear, the shoes (too wide) or the drums (too narrow) is wrong.

Also can you provide a pictures of the brake assembly (with the drum removed)?
