ok listen to me closely! There is an adjuster on ford aspires i cant remember if its the top or bottom but you will see the part im talking about. This piece sits directly between the brake shoes. This has been adjusted out and made longer which is normal with worn shoes! You need to twist the adjuster all the way in with new brake shoes. This part your gonna be looking for has a little round wheel on it with tiny little jaggers all the way around that wheel. It is made this way so that once it gets where its suppose to be it cant back off. Self adjusters is what you need to be looking for so if you cant find on your car google it "self adjusters for rear brake shoes" that will fix you right up, just remember run that little feller all the way in. Then that brake drum will slide right on there for ya

Have a look at bleeding procedure OF BRAKE SYSTEM. i think it helps.
There are no special bleeding procedures for the ABS SYSTEM. For bleeding, please use the standard rules as described for the conventional brake system as follows: 1. Remove the reservoir cap and fill the brake reservoir with brake fluid.
Do not allow brake fluid remain on a painted surface. Wash it off immediately. When bleeding by pressurized fluid, do not depress the brake pedal. 2. Connect the vinyl tube to the wheel cylinder bleeder plug and insert the other end of tube in a half-full container of brake fluid.
3. Slowly pump the brake pedal several times. 4. While depressing the brake pedal fully, loosen the bleeder plug until fluid starts to run out. Then, close the bleeder screw. 5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until there are no more bubbles in the fluid. 6. Tighten the bleeder plug screw. 7. Repeat the above procedure for each wheel in the sequence shown in the illustration.

IT IS POSSIBLE THE WHEEL CYLINDERS are wrong and need too much fluid to push brakes out. or rear shoes are not adjusted correct. this could be from drums too big(unlikely since new) shoes are not fitting to drum correct.You can take shoes off and set them in drum the whole shoe should contact drum sometimes just the ends contact. If this is case sand off ends of lining to make it fit .
If wheel cylinders are bad they would leak. might try a different brand of cylinders.

Try having the dealer flush and bleed your system. It is very hard to bleed ABS systems yourself and have safe brakes that still work afterward. Bleeding non-ABS brakes yourself is easy not the same for ABS brakes. Valving, sensors and what-not require a tech and the correct equipment in my opinion. You do it wrong and you could ruin your ABS system. Do that and see if they firm up. I replaced my brake shoes/pads at the same time all new everything in back, drums/springs everything and new rotors up front. then I had the chevy dealer flush, refill and bleed system. Stiffer pedal and brakes work better. Keep in mind the brakes on 99 Tahoes are inaedequate, require new rotors often, heat up and fade/glaze pads regularly. I replace my pads long before they wear down because they glaze up and start fading early. I'll rough em up once maybe, next time, new ones. Every two brake jobs, new rotors for me. Just how it is. They will stiffen a bit and work better but they will never be awesome brakes. Just how it is on 99 and earlier Tahoes. Hope it helps. Very important to bleed correctly though. I'll bleed my 83 Toyota 4x4 myself but not the Tahoe.

Good question, on the antilock system is a bleader too and bleade it the same way you bleade the caliper. After all is done adjust the rear brakes, they should have a drag to them.
