finally got the new drive train in and drove it... realized the break peddle almost reaches the floor before it slows down. I also had problems with the e-break, but i've been told the way to adjust that is running the truck in reverse and hitting the break... I did just replace the rear breaks (shoes, springs, drums). Any ideas why the peddle goes so far before I'm stopping???

Thanks guys...

You need to manually adjust the rear brakes up. There is no parking brake adjustment except when you replace the cables etc.

The self adjusters work when you stop in reverse then stop in forward. But the brakes need to be adjusted properly first, the self adjusters are only made to make very small adjustments.
