Went to inspection station today and he stated my parking was going to fail. He said that with the truck in drive he should be able to go up to 1500rpm and it still hold.

Here is my problem. I came home and bottomed out the adjustment screw by the pedal and it will hold in drive but just a little gas and it will go. I just changed my rotors and pads to frozen and hawk. While looking at the p-brake shoes..they looked ok, but did not have a new one to compare. I had axle leaks 13,000 miles ago and it says they changed shoes, and then just 1 week ago I had another axel seal replaced and they did not say anything about needing parking brake shoes.

Since the pedal adjustment is bottomed out, it it worth going under the rotors and adjusting that star adjustment????? If so what is the best tool to grab and adjust it. Which way should it turn Does anyone know how much pad should be there?? Or should I just replace both side shoes...While I am doing it should I buy new springs etc. Truck is 05 with 69,000

Also does anyone know if there is a good DIY on changing parking brake shoes out there.(with pics) I tried searching around and did not find much......a couple with text explainations, but not sure if I was reading correctly.
Thanks..

I made a vid series on changing a rear axle seal. Getting to the parking brake is part of the process. Should give u a good idea of what u'll be getting into.

IIRC, you want to adjust the shoes so that they are 6mm diameter less than the drums diameter. If you had to bottom out the pedal/cable adjustment, I would do a complete visual inspection of your parking brake system.
