    Default Parking brake on a 2008 Suburban

    I have search as many forum as I can find and no where have i been able to find out how to change the parking brake system on my 2008 Suburban. I did figure out (I think) that there are no adjustments that can be made. so i figure somewhere there is a hidden brake system that needs to be replaced.

    I use my parking brake out of habit because I tow a large travel trailer and park on hills and find it much easier to shift out of park
    Thanks for any help
    Regards

    The parking brake shoes reside inside the brake rotor hat. I remember adjusting it once a long time ago. I don't remember though if I took the rotor out or not. But there was an adjustment.

    no problem. better start spraying those caliper bracket bolts with pb blaster and let it soak for a day.
