Did you match up the shoes before putting them on? Short shoe front facing, Long shoe rear facing. I've seen some people put both long shoes on one side and shorts on the other. Check the park brake make sure it isn't binding in the actuator arm or cable. You may have to put a slight angle on the fore and aft edges of the shoes this helps with break in period. Make sure there are no contamination on the brake lining any grease or oil can cause your condition. HTH
