What is wrong with my brakes? on 1999 Dodge Ram 2500

I recently put new pads and shoes on my ram 2500 and now every time Im slowing down once I hit about 25mph they start grabbing. I put the thicker shoes (primary) on the rear and set the adjustment properly when I was done. I know it takes a minute for the brakes to seat properly but its been 6 days and its still doing it. Whats wrong?

WELL I THINK IF THEY HAVE ENOUGH MATERIAL ON THEM YOU WOULD BE WASTING MONEY.ANY AUTO PARTS WITH A BRAKE LATHE CAN MEASURE THEM AND SEE IF THEY CAN BE TURNED.
