Its also likely the shoes are not aligned with each other.

"With the shoes now secured take the drum and place over top (if it doesn't slide right on DON'T PANIC, simply tap the individual shoes up or down until they line up (at which point the drum will slide on). Last part is to adjust the drums, this simple procedure is covered many places on the internet (and plan on adjusting the drums at every oil change)."
