    2000 z28 emergency brake installation HELP!!!

    Hey Guys I am new to the forum:

    My brother does my brake jobs all the time
    but the last time I did my brakes the emergency brake shoes needed
    replacing and my brother said I am not sure how to replace them
    they are not that bad lets close everything up and pass on them this time.
    That was 40,000 miles ago. I now have 111,000 on my car and the brakes
    are shot. I want him to put everything on this time.

    Could anybody and everybody give me information on the instructions
    for the emergency brake shoes install be it written or visual pdf files etc.
    I will take any info I can get from you guys to help my brother do the job right.

    The f'n emergency brakes are so bad the parts rattle around over bumps
    I AM COMPLETELY DISGUSTED ALREADY AND WANT THEM REPLACED
