[DML] Re:Parking Brake...NOT!

Pulled the wheels off and checked the system.  Both cables pull tightly but at the farthest adjusted location (like out of threads on the outter nut) it is tighter, but still doesn't completely lock the wheels.  My guess is that the pads, though they look pretty meaty yet, are worn enough that the 'throw' of the parking brake mechanism is too short to really bind them tightly against the rotors.  I'll have to get those brakes done (turned and new pads) and see of that corrects the problem.  Thanks for the responses.  Hope this helps someone else.
