You either installed something incorectly or simply pulled the adjuster too far down. When you put them in new you have to put the adjuster wedge all the way at the top at it's thinnest section.

The adjust was at the fullest top, when assemble the disk turns freely the moment you start stepping on the brakes or handbrake it start binding, i was thinking maybe the hand brake lever at the shoes does not release at its fullest, the lever where the cable attach to
