ok so i heard that our parking brakes are pices of shit and fail...well i tried mine out the other day and just as i suspected, mine dont hold for shit. i heard that becuase of the way they fail they trash your rear rotors so you gotta get new rotors and shoes. i was wondering if its worth gettin gsome after market rotors and shoes, like some slotted rotors. i didnt know if the aftermarket rotors had the built it parking brake drums though. anyone got any reccomendations?

my parking break has never worked... and they blamed it not working on my 2/4 drop. Funny thing is that the dealership installed it, so they were just being lazy. My new parking break is the ground :D

Its a hydraulic lock. You hit the brakes and pull the handle/push the button. It closes valves and locks the brakes, all 4 wheels. We have it on our wrecker, I love it.
