if there is any fluid or oil at all on the drum or shoes then it will cause freezing grabbing


gotta be clean and dry
Everything you mentioned is correct. The shoes are on properly and there are no leaks, everything is dry.
I have not taken the parking brake bar out, but almost everything else i have tried. Only thing i haven't replaced on the rear brakes is the drums and those may be next. I am running out of options....thanks for the help
