Question about 1996 Chevrolet C1500
Checked front pads (60% good), rear shoes (75% good), replaced master cylinder, new fluid, pressure bled system. All this and brakes are spongy. I have searched and not found the rear brake adjustment star screw...as I've always been used to. Does the 96 chevy have an adjustment screw for the rears?? Any other suggestions on getting the brake pedal more firm?
Thanks in advance,
You can adjust the shoes outward on the rear by removing the wheels and drums, then above the axle but below the wheel cylinder you will see an arm that is horizontal, pushing both of the shoes outwards. There should be an adjustment nut that you can turn to extend the arm to push the shoes out.

It seems like air is still in the lines...you've got to keep bleeding it....start with the passenger side rear wheel first and go to the front driver side wheel. then criss cross it and keep bleeding it out.
