Replaced shoes and drums on the rear of the 97 Legacy. Also got the hardware bag with new springs, cup-washers, through bolts. So everything except the wheel cylinder is new there. Test drove it and worked fine. The first few days I had a bit of a deeper pedal travel, was only going around here in the country. Then the brakes worked perfectly, no more exessive pedal travel, just perfect brakes. After 2 more weeks now, I hear bang-bang from the right rear, proportional to speed. same loundness for high or low speed, hard or light braking. No noise if I don’t brake. Took off the drum yesterday, everything looked good, nothing out of order. Anybody has an idea?

maybe the shoes need to be adjusted? try some reverse braking, it should self adjust. otherwise you may have to turn the little star wheel on the bottom
