Double check your rear brakes. Sometimes your self adjusting screw (star-wheel adjuster) is seized, or your wheel cylinder won't retract, or your parking brake cable is seized in the activated position.
With the brakes applied, the angle of the slack adjuster and the actuating rod should be at 90 degrees.
An air brake system which uses foundation drum brakes will have one slack adjuster per brake - two per axle. They'll be located inside the wheel well - the slack adjuster is will be located at the end of the pushrod which extends out from the brake chamber.

Slack adjusters are the linkage between the operating rod in the brake chamber and the S-cam (drum brakes) or power screw (disc brakes) in an air brake system.

Check your brake caliper pistons for seizing in their bore. Remove the brakes again and see if the piston compresses steadily under minimal pressure. Determine whether front or back due to discoloration of the surface of the rotors-blue means heat and that will determine front vs rear.
