Hi and welcome to 2CarPros.

Are you referring to the rear brakes? If so, I have a feeling you are referring to the parking brake cable. Here are the directions for the entire cable replacement. The attached pictures correlate with these directions.

_________________________________

Removal and Installation

1. NOTE: The parking brake control is shown removed for clarity.

Make sure tension on the parking brake cables is fully released
1 While a helper pulls down on the front cable, insert a pin through the park brake control frame and cam.

2. WARNING: The electrical power to the air suspension system must be shut off prior to hoisting, jacking or towing an air suspension vehicle. This can be accomplished by turning off the air suspension switch located in the RH kick panel area. Failure to do so can result in unexpected inflation or deflation of the air springs, which can result in shifting of the vehicle during these operations.

Raise and support the vehicle.

3. Separate the LH rear cable from the equalizer.

4. Remove the conduit from the bracket.
1 Compress the retainer.
2 Remove the conduit from the bracket.

5. Remove the LH rear cable.
1 Remove the LH rear cable from the retaining clip.
2 Disconnect the spring.
3 Disconnect the ABS sensor wire.

6. Remove the wireform bracket retaining screw.

7. Compress the retainer and release the conduit, then unclip the cable end from the lever.
8. To install, reverse the removal procedure.

The only other thing I can think of related to brakes are the rear parking brake shoes. Here are the directions. Starting with picture 7, all remaining picture correlate with these directions.
