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.

reverse the e brake adjusters you put them in backwards.

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.
