Mr. Walter please be advised that rear brake adjustment as you describe only occurs with rear drum brakes and not disc brakes.

Talking Best stop for the buck

I must say Denis, this fixed my breaks perfect. I knew there had to be something wrong but simple. Any car with 4-wheel disc should stop on a dime. I had the same problem as the rest of you guys that even cost me a new nose piece plus paint. As soon as I read the thread, I ran home and dove right in to it. I don't cre what everyone else thinks about you Denis, YOU"RE THE MAN!(ha,ha,ha) My car has a whole new attitude.

Happy to hear

I really do appreciate your post and wish you the best of luck. The first repair shop that i worked in an old irish mechanic told me once " a car that doesn't run can is ok but a car that doesn't stop now thats a problem"

Be well
Happy Holidays

What luck that I just searched and found this topic. I just got done taking the pv off my 89 IROC cause my rear brakes are dead. I changed everything else and was getting ready to buy a new pv but maybe I wont need to now. I'm sorry if this was already answered but how many coils should I cut off the spring to keep the rears from locking up? Or should I take it completly out?

Boy with snow coming it'll be nice to actually be able to stop without having to put the car in neutral!!

I do not mean to sound like an a-hole but if you read each post carefully it will tell u exactly how to diagnos your system and find out if it needs to be removed completely or just shorten the spring
Happy Holidays
Best luck

Anybody tried this on a DRUM brake car? My rears are doing little to nothing too.
