If any of you ever need a hardware kit for your rear emergency brake (2004 I know forsure) that contains all springs, adjusters, adjuster plugs, clips, and pins... You can get it at AutoZone for 21.99 + shipping. Part number H7935 (Duralast).

Working on the brakes are ya? Get signed up on the advance online deal email list. Awesome deals but, they didn't have the multifunction "left hand switch" that I needed for my fog lamps so, I got mine from Autozone for $50 and change. Partsjockey turned me on to the site and it beats his discount. I think I replaced my radiator for $140 last month.

Yea i am gearing up for when it gets warmer. TOTAL brake rebuild. Centric premium rotors all around, black magics in the front, EBC green in the rear, and a total clean & rebuild of the e-brake with new shoes.

I go to Advance more often. But Autozone has WAY more obscure parts, or so it seems. Plus their site is faster and more convenient than Advance IMHO. But I am signed up for all the junk I can find.

until there is slack in front cable.
(5) Insert adjusting tool through support plate
access hole and engage tool in teeth of adjusting

screw star wheel
(6) Rotate adjuster screw star wheel (move tool
handle upward) until slight drag can be felt when
wheel is rotated.
(7) Push and hold adjuster lever away from star
wheel with thin screwdriver.
(8) Back off adjuster screw star wheel until brake
drag is eliminated.
(9) Repeat adjustment at opposite wheel. Be sure
adjustment is equal at both wheels.
(10) Install support plate access hole plugs.
(11) Adjust parking brake cable and lower vehicle.
(12) Depress park brake lever and make sure park
brakes hold the vehicle staionary.
