Glad i got it done, fiance is pissed i spent the day with the car rather then with her.
Sounds like my wife

She is jealous of "my other b!tch"
She says I spend too much time and money on her...lol

Vacuumed up the glass that was left behind from someone breaking into my car. My poor car is off to the body shop for the third time this year..

Over the past few days I had a rotational metal on metal rubbing noise.
Also I noticed that I have to pull up my parking brake pretty far.

after reading some threads regarding the noise I was experiencing I decided to check my parking brake shoes.

this is what I found....


Seems like chucks were coming off and getting wedged in between the shoe and the drum causing a rubbing noise that would go away after a few miles.

Also today I adjusted my exhaust.
my muffler was vibrating on the heat shield

Hello folks. New owner as of 2 days ago. Re-tinted front glass as the previous owner had it removed for a fix it ticket. Also added a 10 inch sub in a small box and remounted the PO's amp. Next is wheels/tires.

A lot of people forget/don't know about the parking shoes. I completely forgot about mine until I took my e-brake cable off for the subframe reinforcement. Should check it out next time you guys get a chance to change brakes.
