Brake Adjustment 55 Cadillac Eldorado

It is always great to take a break from all the fancy of technology and just take some time enjoying the beauty of a classic.

The 55 Cadillac Eldorado has been kept up over the years and mechanically looks awesome. A slight brake pedal fade requires a brake adjustment at all 4 wheels.

As brake dust can cause some brake squeaks, always good measure to ensure you take the steps to clean out. We utilized a quick drying Zep aerosol, but you can use soapy water as a very good substitute.

The adjustment to the brake shoe lining can be done typically using a brake adjustment spoon from the backside of drum backing plate area. As the adjustments are made , resistance should be felt as you are spinning the drum,while carefully not over adjusting as this can cause brakes to lock up.

Will keep you guys posted when the 55 comes back in to the garage! Until then, thanks for stopping by!
