    hey can anyone tell me why or how to fix the problem with my rear brakes; it for some reason unadjusts itself to the point that you pull the handbrake and step on the brakes theres no braking force at all. ive already had it adjusted twice but it keeps resetting.

    are you sure its unadjusting itself? or do you do a lot of e-brake maneuvers that would wear them faster resulting in a need to readjust

    and yea, drums suck ass...

    Drums are not as bad as everyone says they are. They actually have more surface area than a disk of comparable size, they just lack the heat disapaton of a disk.

    does parking with the e-brake count :p naw i dont do e-brake manueuvers. ive already had to adjust them twice; in 4-day interval.. im sure they are unadjusting themselves. they arent adjusting to the brake wear, but doing the opposite. it reduces the brake adjustment all the way(the star adjusting nut is turn all the way so that you dont even see any thread on the rod its connected to).
