Just because the shoes are new does not mean they are not to tight

Too tight and they lock up, too loose and they lock up, warped drums and they lock up, any fluid on the shoes and they lock up, not bled right they lock up.

Drum brakes are kinda picky. I would get a new hardware kit if you didn't already, make sure everything is correct, check for an axle seal leak or brake fluid leak, and lastly check the rabs valve.

There are a few kits but they all have issues. The best method I have seen is using a 10.5 from a 99+ but then you have to deal with the metric lug pattern.

i have a kit from blackbird custom trucks. they worked okay as a stock replacement. upgraded the booster to a hydrobooster setup and they are awesome. they still might lock up in the rain
