    Interesting. Something more to look for when I inspect mine in spring. Thanks!

    In theory...

    If the rear shoe adjusters are working correctly, you use your parking brake regularly, and your brake shoes are in decent shape...then the number of 'clicks' you get pulling up on the parking brake handle should remain the same over time.

    So if you can pull your parking brake handle up 10+ clicks, it's time for a visual inspection.
