Parking brake repair and rear shocks replacement 

The E brake pedal went to the floor with no resistance. I took the drums off and blew out all the brake pad dust. Over half the pad is left. Put the drums back on and adjusted. Adjust about an inch of slack in the E brake cable under the drivers side door. Brake works great now. I bought new shocks on Rockauto.com. The top nut on the shocks were hard to get to. The whole upper shock shaft would spin when trying to remove them. I finally had to torch them off. The rubber caught on fire both times. I had to run and get a wet towel to extinguish it. Turned out great!

Total Cost: $30
