I always used to do this on my mini as the shoes were square, but these shoes already had a slight chamfer so didn't bother. I'll take them apart and add a bit more.

Could a dodgy rear brake bias valve linked to the rear suspension be causing the problems? I remember it being a fail on the last MOT but the tester managed to free up the linkage with some WD40 & passed it.
