From Chilton, Due to the auto adjust feature of the parking brake lever, no manual adjustment of the operating cables for the parking brake system is required. On vehicles that have rear disc brakes, proper adjustment depends on proper adjustment of the drum-in-hat parking brake shoes. On vehicles with rear drum brakes, proper operation of the parking brake depends on proper adjustment of the rear drum brake shoes.
