New drums or machined surfaced? Could be wrong shoes, installed wrong or proportioning valve on master cylinder. You car has redundant brakes, a separate pressure feed for front and rear, that's what proportioning valve does, in case one of the stages on the master cylinder fails. Oversimplified explanation, but tossing guesses

Did you replace to rubber brake line that goes to the valve that separates and goes to each rear brake wheel cylinders.

i had new drums , brakes cylinders brake lines replaced and grinds, if you put the bad brakes in grinding gone put the new once in grinding is back the dealership don't know why new brakes grind they tested everything all passed i know many people have the some problem but they never say what it was doing it. so i just had the whole rear end replace with all new part and the whole braking system replaced no grinding for a week on the highway had to stop the grinding all over again $3,000.00 dollars and the grinding came back after a week, car stops fine it's just that grinding and it's loud people outside can hear it had my wife stop the car and i was outside it sounds like the rear end going to come off or something like that.

some one told me it could be a plate that is be hide the drum when car stops the brake shoe might be moving and hitting the plate what plate no clue, or brake shoe is not staying in place i took drums off everything looks good i even got the book on the car everything looks right wish i could put a camera inside and see what is going on when i stop.

When they redo or look at your brakes are the brake shoes metal to metal on the drum ? Can you hear this grinding only when the brakes are applied or all the time.
