I rebuilt the drum brakes with new springs and adjusters, and all new cables, and tightened them up. I did not pit on new pads or drums, as the pads have a lot of material left, and the condition of the pads and drums looks acceptable but not great. I tightened the cables, very tight with parking brake pedal high, and it goes almost to the floor, but doesn't fully stop vehicle from moving under gas. I suspect that I need to replace the pads and drums, which I should have done, but am very low income (doing the work myself). Otherwise the brakes seem to work well, but that might be the front disks doing most of the work as they are under 3 years old. Parking brake is the concern, for passing inspection. Thanks for any info.
have the same problem?
