Hi .

if loading up and still had the same issue i would sugest checking the weight conpensater
did you bleed this before bleeding the rear wheels .

If you have no air in the system recheck the shoe adjustment , turn adjuster until the wheel will no longer turn then back of 4 clicks wheel should turn . Do this to both sides .

If you have the tools you could check the fluid pressure before the compensator and then at the wheels .
