I have a 2003 Suburban Z71 with 4 wheel disc brakes and the emergency brake will not hold the truck. The emergency brake pedal goes all the way to the floor with no resistance. The equalizer nut is adjusted all the way out and star wheel is adjusted on both sides so the drums just clear the emergency brake shoes. I had to replace the emergency brake shoes because I knocked a shoe off the right side putting the drum/rotor back on. I did notice that with the emergency brake shoe off and the emergency brake pedal is depressed only one side of the emergency brake wheel cylinder pushes on the shoe. Anybody have any idea why the emergency brake is not holding.
