(1999 Ford Ranger)
when i stop and take off normal (not very fast, 4 cyl.) there is a lite roaring echo noise from the rear drum brakes for about 15-20 ft. new brake shoes, springs and proper adj. pretty sure the brakes are not releasing completely. What could cause this

Jack up and support the vehicle spin the wheels by hand, do you feel them drag? Apply and release the hand brake spin the wheels again by hand, do you feel any drag now? Are the brake springs assembled correctly? After driving the truck and applying the the brakes does one rear wheel /drum feel "hotter" than the other side?
