Possibly the load compensator valve is at fault

Re: Rear Brake Imbalance

usually just the hydraulic side of it?

Maybe a worn shoe adjuster or a knackered drum?

Re: Rear Brake Imbalance

I've had similar problems with other cars where there has been a large difference. I solved it by stripping that side completely, take everything off that comes off, have it all apart, clean it all thoroughly, grease what needs to be greased, put it all back together & make sure you thoroughly bleed the system. It's a PITA I know but sometimes that is the best way.
It may be the automatic adjuster isn't doing its job because the rest is gunged up. In any case, a good old clean up won't go amiss.
Did have one car that would fail each year on the rear brakes. Two pieces of metal joined in the middle where they pivot on a metal pin. The pivot point would sieze up during the year. After the second year I stripped the brakes & ran a slightly larger drill bit through the hole & never had a problem after that.
