Well my new Ranger is doing fine driving her daily. I got into the brake system today checked the front pads (GOOD pad life left). Then pulled the rear drums t see why the parking brake pedal was so soft. Well the shoes looked basicly new because the adjuster on the drivers side was totaly siezed I fought with that little $hit for like an hour WD-40, propane torch, vice and vice grips, tapping with a hammer but finaly got the threaded end to turn out then more WD-40 and heat to break the other end loose. So a spot of grease here and there and back together spun the adjuster wheel from the backside till it was just right and went ahead and lubed the other adjuster also and did the adjustment over there also. All back together works like a champ parking break pedal feels strong at about half way to the floor.
