Removed drum and inspected shoes, inside of drum shows very little wear and both shoes are wearing evenly. All appears normal. But, problem occurs with every application of brakes forward or reverse.

    I checked that already, and it is round. I'm starting to think there's something in the anti-lock control at the brake manifold. It's acting like there's a surge of pressure to that one cylinder only. It releases with no problem and the problem lessens after about 5 or 6 applications. It's a head scratcher for sure.
