Default Rear End Noise

Hello all, first post with an issue. I have a 2000 Ranger 2wd, 2.5 liter. I developed a "thumping" noise in the rear end when the brakes are applied. It only makes this sound when brakes are applied and seems to get louder the harder the they are applied. I had the drums turned and installed new shoes. It never made this sound before the new brakes were installed. Thinking something was loose, I took the drums back off and looked for any loose parts, none were found. Got under the vehicle, pushed, pulled and tugged on the drive shaft and U joints seem to be ok, also no leaks anywhere on the rear axle. Help in Texas!

Just a shot in the dark. what are the tires like have you had them balanced lately,also if you have been playing in the mud sometimes that will stick on the inside of the rim and cause an out of balance in the wheels

Replace the drums, they weren't turned straight on the lathe.
