Don't they self-adjust every time you pull the e-brake?

They do, but only if your bell cranks aren't seized and the parking brake is adjusted correctly. New wheel cylinders for the rear are cheap. I got mine for $20 each. Make sure to replace your drums too.

The bell cranks seemed loose and mobile but I'll go through the e-brake adjustment just to make sure that's OK.
I was hoping not to get into replacing the wheel cylinders since they're not leaking but I guess it couldn't hurt.
Kind of going between refreshing everything and just getting the drums resurfaced and putting new shoes on.

These E-Brakes are notorious for not self adjusting. Were the adjusters even or did someone have one out twice or 3x more then the other side. If the wheel cylinder plungers are moving freely. I would check that bell crank or the E-brake was stuck on burned the pad off. As the pivot point in the bell crank is always freezing on these rigs.

Only pulled the driver side last night. I'll compare the adjusters when I pull both drums this weekend. When I replace everything I'll probably pull the bell cranks out and make sure they're well lubed and not corroded.

That rear shoe is pretty worn down too. I donít think that situation is too abnormal, they should have been replaced a long time ago.

Iíd just do shoes and drums and clean things up properly. Make sure you lube all the correct points (see fsm). Iíd try leaving the cylinders alone, maybe just check again in a few months to see it looks good still.

I was actually just throwing around this idea.

Is Sylglide good to use on these or is there something better?

I havenít done enough of these to recommend anything. Hopefully someone else will. Sorry.

Pulled the passenger side drum to take them to get turned and found gear oil all over everything. My simple brake job just turned into an axle seal job.

This isn't how I envisioned the first week of ownership. Haha
