Default Re: Dragging Parking Brake with new Rotors and Shoes

The adjuster is all the way closed and I even loosened the 4 bolts on the parking brake adjuster in the center of the van, but it is still dragging. I can just turn the wheel by hand with a 2 foot long bar. That seems too much dragging to me.

Any ideas?


Where did you get the brake rotors, parking brake shoes, and brake pads from? I have seen countless out-of-spec aftermarket brake parts over the years...
