2001 XJ Rear Brake Drum Adjustment
I just got my front rotors replaced, pads replaced, rear drums machined and new shoes. The Jeep doesn't stop as quickly as it used to and the e brake has to be pulled all the way up for it to stay put. I saw there was a plug on the bottom of the drum that has an adjustment star wheel. Which way do I need to turn for tightening and which way for loosening. I don't think the self adjuster works. I don't want to over tighten the shoes but I would like for the rear brakes to be a little more responsive and for the e brake to actually work. Any help would be appreciated.
