Default PT clicking in rear when stopping

My 01 cruiser is making a clicking sound on the left rear when I apply the breaks. I have replaced the shoes and had the drums turned. Any one had this problem? Any help will be great.[:I]

Welcome, PTCruiser.
Wheels studs absolutely tight? Do you have base with hubcaps? Might be a stone inside.
Maybe the brake self-adjuster? [:I]

No hubcaps, it clicks only when the brakes are applied. I removed the brake adjuster and it still makes this clicking sound. Any help with this matter will be welcome.

Haven't had a lot of this problem but it could be a brake cylinder. They get some slack in them and will click like that. Also might be that the brakes need to be adjusted. Despite what Chrysler says the self adjust feature doesn't work that great... On the extreme end the drums may not have been turned right and instead of a smooth surface you get more of a threaded type surface which will make the clicking also...
