WHY DO I HAVE EXCESSISE BRAKE PEDAL WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES, I JUST CHANGED THE DRUMS AND SHOES AND BEFORE THE PEDAL WAS FINE.

2005 Chevrolet Colorado • 148,000 miles

The only other thing I did was disconected the parking brake behind the drivers side, so that I could get the retaining spring back on the emergency brake easy on both sides. Should the shoes be adjusted out more? I never disconected any brake lines, and I have enough brake fluid in the master cynlider, thanks for any help you could give.

Do you have a leak anywhere? If not-Try adjusting the brake shoes and rebleed the brakes in accordance with the repair manual-
