Sounds like the park brake shoes are missing something and allowing a shoe too engage when backing up, you will have to remove the rotor to gain access to them.

Drums in back I agree with tennisshoes. Double check your work and the adjustment mech.

You may have the rear shoes in backwards,there,s one shoe that is alittle shorter on the lining than the other. When I do drum brakes I lay the parts on the floor just like they come off the vehicle. This saves alot of headaces,an oldtimer thaught me this when I was a youngen working in a filling station.
