My rear brakes have been dragging and making lots of noise over the past year or so, sometimes to the point where they have started smoking. A couple weeks ago I heard metal grinding noises in the rear, so I figured I better take a look at it. Sure enough, the pads on the left year were totally gone and the backing plate was digging into the rotor. Wanting to get the rear brakes fixed once and for all, I headed off to Napa last Sunday and bought new loaded rear calipers, brake lines, and rotors. I checked the front pads, and they were getting thin, too, so I bought pads, lines, and rotors for the front as well. I got everything installed, flushed the system, and was good to go, or so I thought. The rear tires finally spun freely once again, that is until I tried the e-brake. One cycle of the brake caused the rear brakes to lock right up. Further inspection of the e-brake cables showed they were seized on both sides and it took A LOT of effort to pull the cables back enough to release the calipers. After being quite pissed that I dumped a ton of money into the car only to have the same problem, I got on RockAuto and ordered up all three cables since it was going to take my local Napa longer to get them in than RockAuto could have them shipped to me and Napa wanted quite a bit more money. The cables showed up this week, and I spent yesterday installing them. They were a PITA to install, especially with my aftermarket control arms and rear H-brace, but once they were in, I was very happy! I couldn't believe how seized the old cables were once I pulled them off and compared them to the new ones. The e-brake now fully releases and the rears don't drag at all!!! Funny how $60 worth of parts and a few hours of work can make such a huge difference.
