Brakes problem
1984 GMC S15 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles

I have had to replace the rear backing plates. Is there a tool to compress the spring on e-brake cable at the backing plate to re-attach the the lever arm to the cable?

No! I use 2 pair of sidecutters, put them together at the nub, spread the spring, hold and install lever, fairly simple!

Thanks been tryining to do it bare handed with plyers. Don't have side cutter's though.

You can use any pliers, dykes work best!
