Default Knocking from rear driver side wheel when braking

I just replaced the rear shoes and drums on my 03 NA. Now when ever I brake there is this annoying knocking coming from the rear of the car. Anyone else had this problem?

Take it back apart and see what you did wrong.

Sorry, should have said that I have already. Put it back the same as the passenger side which isnt knocking. Since I really dont enjoy replacing parts if they dont need replacing I would like to get some options as to what it might be.

It sounds like a bad hub...I had a similar noise when braking and it was the hub

Thanks Gus, how much of a job is that to replace?

Is not that expensive... $60 here but probably you can find it cheaper...

If it is a hub, make sure you get the correct one, they are different for disk brakes and drum brakes... RockAuto has them as well for decent prices and Advance Auto always has some sort of discount codes too.
