Default Break shoe width

I have a problem getting the correct torque on my rear hub.It binds at 40 ft lbs. I also see signs of hub to shoe interference. My shoe width measures 1 5/8". Do you feel that is correct?
Should I grind off the high spots , replace the shoes, or is there something else I am missing?
These are hydro brakes.
