So I replaced my rear brake shoes, drums and wheel cylinders back in march and everything was all great... until this summer.

My rear brakes stated slightly squeaking when braking and it all went downhill from there. It would squeal extremely loud when braking and squeak the while driving.

Replaced the shoes after only 1,500 miles and still did it. Thought maybe my ebrake cables were locked up (which they were) and where holding the shoes against the drums. Put new cables in a few days ago but STILL squeaking...

This is driving me insane!!!!
only time it doesnt squeak is if I unadjust the shoes to the point they are not functioning and thats no bueno

There are several small "raised" pads on the backing plate that the metal part of the shoe sets on. They will cause the brakes to squeak if they are not lubed with a small amount of grease.
