Re: Rear Drums Sticking REAL Bad
personally i dont mess with drum brakes, i let a shop do them for me, ill do disc myself, but wont touch drum brakes for the very reasons your having. on the flipside, i agree with slick... at least one of your problems is the ebrake cable binding somewhere, solution, go to a junkyard and pull one off of it there, its cheaper and you can see if its damaged. now youve still got the problem of how the ebrake cable got damaged, its probably in inline, its more likely right there at the actual brake, possibly where the pads attach, im assuming your ebrake uses the hydaulic brake pads and not theyre own special mechanical set. so having not actually done much with drum brakes, goodluck and i hope i might have opened up a few possibilities.
