Question about 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe
Ah homie it is your parking brakes, most important thing when doing front or rear brakes is that u need to resurface rotors and drums as well, if u did this already then just simply bleed your rear brakes- from the furthest drum first and so on down the line.
Chevy brakes aren't that well designed like other vehicles but they do function well & correct if done right and use organic or softer material if possible to prevent warpping to the front rotors then you'll have very shakey steering wheel when trying to brake.

I had the same problem years ago. i was told that there was/is a flaw in design and the brake slips into place and burns up. i needed to replace the parking break pads, i think, and they tightened the mechanism. i failed my city inspection....cost me time and $ and the mechanic said he saw a lot of this problem in Memphis, but since many cities didn't require inspections on newer cars, it was not going to be adressed by GM.

You can tighten it up by removing the tire, remove the rotor and tighten the adjustment nut (at bottom) about half a turn, reassemble and do the same for the other side.
