Check the hardware for the drum emergency brake inside the the rear disc brakes, these pads are for your emergency brake, there should be an adjustment bolt that just sits between the two pads. Also, check the cables running to this set of pads to make sure they were connected properly. After you have checked the drum emergency brake, follow the cables in the undercarriage and look for the point at which they combine to another single cable, this is the point where the actual cable pressure adjustment is located.

Hi joelalthomas, if they replaced your brakes and you never even made it home they had better warranty the work and as for the "it was a common problem on 2002-2004 trucks" well check for Chevy recalls as this is a safety issue that would have been corrected at no expense to the vehicle owner, do a little more research my friend and let me know what happens, I will check around a little as well in the meantime I would find a new garage.Do not pay any more as you said your brakes worked fine until they worked on it good luck to you As for your 4x4 did you look at the left side when you did the right side? and were they bled off properly? you can visually check to see if the calipers are functioning

Not hard to Replace. you will have to take the Caliper off of the Rotor and then Take the Rotor off, Repack the Bearings! And it is Right There!

YOUR MOST LIKELY PROBLEM IS IN THE REAR ROTORS. THE PARK BRAKE AREA WILL RUST INWARD WEARING OUT THE PARK BRAKE SHOE. THE ADJUSTER IS UNDER THE ROTOR ALSO. ONE ON EACH SIDE.
ADJUST THE SHOE OUT UNTIL IT TOUCHES THE DRUM AND THEN BACK IT OFF ABOUT 6-7 CLICKS.
