    Ok, here's the deal. I recently blew out a rear wheel cylinder on my 86 K5(10 bolt). I replaced both and bled them. No problem. I also cleaned up everything real good and changed the shoes. I adjusted them out until the wheel just dragged and then backed off the adjusting screw 1 or 2 clicks. I put the drums back on and took her for a spin. Everything was good just a little bit of a squeeking noise at very low speed. I figured the drums were probably a little old so I replaced them too. I had to adjust the shoes in as far as they would go toget the new drums on. Now I have to push the pedal almost all the way to the floor to completely stop and I still hear that squeking sound. What gives? /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    sounds like the adjusters in the rear drums are too loose?
