I replaced both the shoes and drums a few hours ago. One side went on fine and I got it adjusted well. However one side I had hammer to get the drum to go on. I know I put everything in right and the expansion adjuster is all the way in and it still was hard to put on...Any answers?

You may have a wheel cylinder that is frozen up, not allowing the shoes to retract all the way. Or you could have a shoe that slipped off one of the bosses on the backing place that the shoes slide on.

NEVER hammer on brakes that you're planning on using...

Did you position the shoes in the center of the backing plate? Were they both touching the anchor pin at the top?
