Also, check to make sure the primary shoes (the one with more pad area) are in the right position on both sides.

I am now preparing to get whapped on the head - my manuals are still in boxes in the garage since I moved and I don't exactly remember - so please, don't whap me too hard if I'm wrong - I think the primary shoes are go towards the rear for the front brakes and towards the front for the rear brakes. If one side is on backwards, you could have imbalanced braking - happened to me once.
