Take the drums back off and make sure that the side that is locking up that you didn't put the shoes on backwards. Because it will go together fine backwards but you will have an issue like this. And i believe the small shoe goes towards the front of the truck.

Ya it's not that it seems to be fine untill there is pressure on the drum then it still spins but it's really hard and the drum is heating

Does the drum slide over the shoes easily when reassembling?

Found out what it was for a nice price ... The self adjuster bracket apparently when I took it to ford they put in 2 left ones they are different on each side I guess
