FORD F-150 WHEEL PROBLEM

1988 Ford F-150 • 250,000 miles

How does the rear anti locks work on this 4x4 truck. Just replaced rear shoes, wheel cylinders, hubs, new springs and emergency brake cables. The rear anti lock light comes on and the left rear wheel is so tight that it was smoking. After it cooled down I removed the wheel and the hub was no longer tight. I could spin it and slide it off with no problems. When I installed the parts above I adjusted the shoes out until they were barely touching then back off adjuster 1/4 of a turn. When I removed the hub after they had smoked from being to tight they had worn enough off the shoes that you could shake the hub back and forth a 1/4". Because I had a problem with them being to tight I left them at this setting even though I know this is to loose. The next day I drove the truck to work and when I got there the left rear wheel was hot and almost to the smoking stage again. This morning the left side was fine but the right sife is getting hot?
