I just replaced the parking brake shoes and related hardware (springs, pins, etc) on both the RR and LR think that this would fix the parking brake. The parking brake cable is tight when I set the brake now, but the shoes don't appear to engage the inner drum of the rotor. It's as if the shoes are stuck in place, but I can pull them apart manually.

Any suggestions?

Rear brakes are similar, but best bet is to check the install. Factory service manual can be found here http://www.biodsl.com/durangofsm.htm you can check the 2000 Durango or the 2005 Dakota, as both manuals are available and the disc brakes should be set up similarly. Hope that will help...

This happened to me. I had to adjust the 'pin' at the bottom of the shoes to separate them more. They were too close and would not put enough pressure on the walls to keep the wheel from moving. Just twist the pin.
