Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
I have recently replaced the entire rear-end on my 1998 Chevy 1500. Unlike before, the brakes must be pumped up to work properly. I would like to know how to adjust them to rectify this problem. I have been told to adjust them by using the emergency brake. How is this done? I have a 1985 Silverado also, and adjudt them by removing a rubber plug from the inner plate. I do not think that this is the same on my 1998.
The rear drum style brakes can be adjusted by removing the rubber plug on the back of the plate, and using a brake tool or flathead you can turn the "star wheel" adjuster to move the shoes closer or further from the drum.
hope this helps! please rate!
