sticking ebrake is pretty common. new hardware in the drums will help but even then....

usually if mine gets stuck i just floor it in reverse and lock up the brakes. works like a charm lol

I would get a brake kit which should come with new springs.

i had this exact thing happen on two of my rangers. drums and hardware were always fine, it was the e brake cables themselves that rusted out on the inside and seized. You have to replace them. Pretty cheap and easy. Do it sooner than later cause I let mine go on my 03 for awhile and ended up completely wearing out my driverside rear drums and not my passenger side at all.

^^ exactly what he said. I've had to get my cables replaced twice because of them rusting and seizing when using the ebrake.
