Re: Brakes Imbalanced across an Axle
Brakes don't wear evenly so there will always be some degree of imbalance between the two. Possibly one shoe has worn a lot more than the other side, you could have a sticky handbrake mechanism holding one shoe closer to the drum and wearing more, a brake cylinder piston could be corroded or sticky, a return spring could be weak, there's an excess of dirt & dust inside the drum, or a drum could be worn out of 'true'.
Hope this helps.
