Question about 1992 Ford F150 SuperCab
Pull both drums and VERY CAREFULLY compare the left and right side, check all the hardware and return springs, position of the shoes, etc. (You know that the left and right are mirror images of each other, as you look at each assembly, think "front vs. rear" not "right vs. left"
Are the shoes pulled tight against the adjuster and the top post? Check to see that the shoes are resting on the backing plates at the correct points, especially near the bottom.
Make sure the shoes are the correct size and have the same mounting points as the old shoes.
Something is wrong. While you may not feel it sticking or grabbing, the excessive heat will cause trouble, including possibly causing the outer wheel bearing to fail.
You must get this fixed, if you cannot resolve the problem, take it to someone who can. Do not ignore this and hope it will correct itself. It won't.

Testimonial: "Daleinaz: The shoes were not tight against the top post because the emergengy brake cable was pulled tight, thus, not allowing shoes to align properly. The emergency cable will not release. I have taken it loose from the yoke under the drivers door and it still won't release. Any Ideas"
