I replaced the rear brake shoes and drum, but I don't feel as if they are working properly. I did as the manual suggested and pumped the brakes to extend the adjuster. I also drove in forward and reverse. There is pressure in the brake pedal but it seems as if i'm only stopping with my front brakes.

If you didnt manually adjust your brakes then you are just stopping with your front brakes. Those rear brakes have to be adjusted manually when you replace them also as a maintance. There not self adjusting to the point your thinking.
