Rear Brake Clicking/Scrubbing

I have a 2003 extended cab 4X4 ranger with the 4.0. While coasting a low speed (around 20 mph) i was hearing a clicking/scrubbing sound. After I get up to thirty mph I can not hear the sound. I only hear it at low speeds (15-30 mph). I pulled my drum off and my rear brakes were worn out and the drum had a groove in it from the worn out shoes. I changed the brakes shoes and put everything back together. The sound was still there. Next I put a new hardware kit on the brakes and the sound was still there. Next I replaced the drum with a cheap ebay one and the sound was still there. Next I realized I had the primary and secondary shoes all messed up and I fixed that and the sound is still there. What do you guys think the problem is? Should I take my original ford drums and have them machined/turned? My new brake shoes are performance friction carbon metallic from autozone.

I got under my truck and tried to move the drive shaft by hand and it would not move.

I went outside again and tried to move the drive shaft from side to side and it did not have any kind of slop in it. Nothing seemed to be out of the ordinary.

**UPDATE*** I have the problem solved and fixed. The problem was my front drive shaft cv joint. Got the replacement part from Rockauto.
