Emergency brake shoe replacement?

I have 156K miles on my Envoy. Has anyone had to replace these? I readjusted the parking brake shoes a few months ago and they looked fine lining wise. They just seem like they aren't holding again and need to be adjusted again. Even though I adjusted them to where they were just slightly dragging they just don't seem to have much holding power. Anyone else experience this or acutally had to replace them altogether to solve a similar problem? c good

Have you tried to adjust the brake at the lever yet? You cable might just b stretched out.

Mines holding good after the first adjustment but I don't use it. I actuate it weekly to keep it from sticking.

Isn't it supposed to be self adjusting at the brake lever? If not, what is involved with adjusting at the brake lever? Thanks for your input. c good
