I did a search here but didn't find exactly what I was looking for. My brake pedal was getting pretty sloppy so I decided to adjust the rear brakes. I've got the LSD and it's pretty tough to get a good feel for how tight the brakes are getting. I got them fairly tight and took it for a ride. Boy, does the pedal feel good! However, applying the parking brake I could only get nine clicks or so if I pressed it real hard. The book says 6-9 clicks with 66 lbs. but I'd guess I've got more than that. I still like the feel of the pedal and was thinking that I needed to bleed the brakes to get clean fluid in them ('03, 85k miles, original fluid) until I adjusted the brakes. I'd say, on a scale of 1-10 with 5 being adjusted perfectly I'm at about 6 or 7.
Now, my question is this. I always use the parking brake and I know it adjusts the rear shoes. Will the parking brake loosen the shoes if they are too tight? It wouldn't appear like it would since the little metal tab keeps the star adjuster from going one way.
