Nope. They didn't lock up. But, again, my goal is not to lock them up....I want the rears to adjust themselves.

Thats the wrench you were looking for. A socket doesn't fit very well, but the wrench works great. It'* either an E7 or E8, I forget which one.

It wasn't the E8 (see previous post in this thread). Must be an E9. But ya, that'* the wrench I would have needed. It'* a good thing there wasn't much torque on that bolt, or else the 1/4" box end wouldn't have gotten it off without rounding the head.

Getting up to 35 in reverse and CRAMMING on the brakes is a routine I use after every rear brake job. Doens't bother me....my wife on the other hand...sheeshh... She doens't like me doing that in the neighborhood.
I adjusted my rears manually. What a difference in braking that made! Last time I bought tires I sneaked into the bay and pulled the rear drums off while she was up on the lift. I actually had brake dust and a wear pattern!

I'm not all that certain that before I adjusted them manually, they were grabbing much at all.
