It was really hard to get the drums back on and now(1 week later) its starting to vibrate at speeds above 50 and its still holding back a little bit. What did I do wrong?

Changed the rear end of 1989 Suburban (4 wheel drive). Put on new brake lines for the rear brakes. The brake pedal is hard. There is no brake fluid going to the rear brakes and the front brakes seem to build up pressure - I assume that is what is causing the brake pedal to be hard. When open the front bleeders the pedal drops to the floor. There is a part on the frame of the truck where two brake line intake holes and two lines that go out. The one that goes out to the rear brakes does not
