Question club car brakes a drag

I have a 2001 cc 48v lifted 8'' and 22'' dirt devils. Replaced the brake shoes just three weeks ago and had one side dragging. Checked all adjustments and the brakes are adjusted properly as far as i can tell,but still have dragging situation on the right side. Do the brake cables get weak or get uneven some way?

Welcome to bgw ..... Brake cables stretch and need adjustment under the floor.... there is adjustment for each cable as well as the common peddle adjustment there.

That brake cable that is dragging probably needs replacing as they do go bad from time to time.

It could have been a little tight,you probably should have sprayed some wd40 on the self-adjuster and worked it around to make sure it worked freely before reassembly.

Actually cleaned all parts and lubed with the specified brake lube. Thought i made sure the sliders were working freely after install but will recheck again.

I still say you have a bad brake cable.
