Help with installing brake shoes on 1993 buick park ave

Your Buick has front disc brakes...and rear drum brakes...the usual concern is the front pads as they are used more...these are the easiest pads to you only need to remove the caliper from the rotor with 2 bolts to lift off...Be sure to push the piston all the way back into the caliper to install new pads...rotors are pop offs too...The rear drum is different...the brake shoes are held on with clips and springs...try keeping one of the shoe assemblies intact while you switch out the other sure to inspect the rear wheel brake cylinders for possible leaking...usually an oil build up inside the brake drum...these are inexpensive and should be switched out on a 93 Buick...:) Hope this helps.

When i pull the emergace brake up it does not stop

You need to take the wheel off and see what is physically happening when you pull the ebrake. Check to make sure that it is even moving the caliper.

Well the parking break is a cable that hooks right up to the calipers it is designed to be able to lock the breaks even if you blew out a break line. So bleeding the breaks won't help you unless your caliper pistons are seized. I would repplace the parking break cables and the springs that are on the calipers first. If that doesnt work get a rebuild kit for your rear calipers and that should do it.

Hope helps.

Parking brakes dont work

89 regals are notorious for bad brake design. Especially rear disc brakes. The calipers get hung up, and you end up with premature brake pad/rotor wear. The parking brake, when applied, squeezes the caliper against the disc, hence keeping the car still. If the caliper is frozen, when you push the emergency brake, it can't squeeze the caliper anymore than it is.
OR, the parking brake cable needs adjustment. Have a mechanic look over your rear brakes and parts.
