Some may find this excessive, but every 15k is how often I would adjust those rear drums. I found that the later 01-02 drum setup require less frequent adjusting.

Wow! that's dedication!

Not sure if applying the handbrake while the car is moving backwards trick really works (won't work if your rear brake mechanism is frozen/rusted stuck) but I do that all the time.

I don't think that trick works. Never heard of anyone using it with success. Wanna hear dedication? The original owner of one my 4Runners gave me the records. Adjusted brakes at very oil change!
