Yea, unless you powerslide hard into a curb MAY tweak the axle shaft. Drum brakes are a pain in the arse to diagnose.
4 things im thinking right now.
No lube applied to the drum back plate and the shoes where they rub by design.
Somehow messed up brake bias in the line where there is too much pressure applied to the rear. Typically more pressure is applied to front brakes on all cars.
Chineese (no offense) drums?
Imporperly torqued lug nuts will cause an imbalance. All of them must tightend with a torque wrench to factory spec in the usual star pattern. Most mechanics just crank them mega tight with the impact wrench. I've experienced this issue several times.
