Rear brake dragging

I have a 1998 Taurus. 3.0dohc, SE model. Driver's side rear brake seems to be dragging. New pads, rotors and hoses installed. Drivers side rotor temp is 205*, passenger side is 146*. What could be causing this?

Re: Rear brake dragging

Discs on the rear? All the SE models I've seen, even with alloy wheels in Canada here have rear drums....

As mentioned, I'd check the parking brake cable, something might be amiss with that.
