I have not tried it in 4 lo or 4 hi, this happens in 2wd... and when it does happen seems like the back just starts hopping, from the passenger side.
Ill take a closer look at it this Friday as I have off.
Could this be that the passenger side shoes are tighter then the driver side and its causing it to lock up on that one side?
You want the brake adjustment equal on both sides, that's a given.
Someone else said make sure the primary shoe is towards the front of the axle (good advice). The primary shoe is the one with less friction material (shorter strip of material).
Make sure that both wheel cylinders are free! If you have a frozen wheel cylinder one wheel will not have braking and the locker is going to be noisey.
