On drum brakes make sure that where the shoe touches the backing plate that there is not a groove worn into the backing plate. This is where the shoes float back and forth. These "pads" should be smooth or the shoes will bind in the extended position.

You might have to weld them up and grind them flat or totally replace the backing plates.
