Was this problem there before you changed the Brake shoes. The cavalier has shoes on the rear.
It seems like the leaning show the SHORT one is not facing the front of the car where it should be. If you check the shoes one is shorter than the other in a set. Hope this works. Some model year Cavalier also had a problem with the Backing plate the plate the shoes attaches to.

change the brake hose. I had the same problem, and changed all the parts, caliper, brakes, repacked bearings, etc. then changed the brake hose. problem corrected.( reason being is the hose had over time collapsed on the inside, and being that the release of caliper is not pressure forced it wld'nt allow fluid to return thru the line.)
