Front passenger side brake shoes lockup when coming to a stop. The following has been done to the brake system.
Power assist unit rebuilt
New master cylinder
All new cylinders
New drums in rear
New shoes in front
Had all 4 drums turned

Any suggestions?? I'm a new club member my name is Lou.

Make sure your lines are bled properly and your brake shoes are adjusted properly. Otherwise you may have a wheel cylinder leaking coupled with moisture on the linings. This creates lock-up big time.

I'm only going from my experience and others might have different ideas.
