If you pull the handbrake, how high does it rise until it engages? This clicking noise you hear could be a few different things. Most common is shoes out of adjustment. When you hit the brakes, the drum will pull a shoe, and push the other. When they are far out of adjustment, it can cause the shoes to "clap" and this maybe the noise you hear. Also, did u verify correct shoes were installed per side? One shoe is primary, other is secondary. The shoe with a longer brake surface area, always goes to the back of the vehicle. This is the primary shoe. Im sure you know what your doing, and already knew this, but I need to mention just in case. Anyways, check the shoe adjustment before we go nuts here. You want a little bit of drag, but not much. You replaced drums, so you should beable to slide the drum over the shoes (with a little resistance) and then spin the drum. The drum should spin freely, but have an ever little bit of drag. Does this make sense?
