Question about 2003 Pontiac Aztek
Jack up the rear end, spin each wheel to determine which side needs to come off, have someone else apply the brakes while you are spinning the wheels. Take that wheel off and pull the drum, inspect the spring at the bottom of shoes to determine if it is on or on properly, they are only supposed to go on one way, but can go on wrong and appear to be correct. Otherwise, attach a clamp such as an Irwin 12 in. clamp Model 5412 and clamp it onto the shoes (I've also used duct tape wrapped several times around the brake shoes). Have your friend apply the brakes and watch the backing plate and wheel cylinder to see if they or anything else moves that shouldn't. Make sure your shoes are seated properly at both top and bottom.
