2002 Suburban Parking Brake Adjustment
I've adjusted the parking brake shoes per the manual, but I still go all the way to the floor on the parking pedal. The parking brake does engage enough to hold the vehicle. However, I'm used to having a little reserve in the parking brake pedal.
Is there anotheer adjustement that I am missing?

The PB on my 2001 suburban is exactly the same as well as my 2006 silverado. Now with my 87 blazer, there is a cable adjustment (rear drum brakes) and pedal only goes half way to the florr and is tight.Darcy

The clearance between the park brake shoe and the rotor is 0.6604 mm (0.026 inch).
Park Brake Pedal Adjustment
Important: Before you adjust the park brake, verify that the park brake shoes are adjusted to provide a clearance of 0.6604 mm (0.026 inch) .
- Verify that the equalizer nut is tightened to 3.5 Nm (31 inch lbs.) .
- Fully apply and release the park brake pedal 3 times.
I have little resistance also while pressing down until i'm about 3"s from the floor then i can "feel" the brake engaging then pressing on to lock the brake.
