hopefully yall can see this pic -
I read on here about the adjustment screw - in the pic is the "rubber boot" on the bottom of the brake drum / wheel assembly - is that where I find the brake adjustment screw? I just pull that boot off to find the adjustment screw?
this is on my 06 cc iq ds - recently lifted (6") and the brakes have alot of play in the peddle - brakes don't engage until I push down hard. Before the lift I had real good tight brakes. all the lines and connections seem fine.

Re: brake adjustment
You have to take the drums off to get to the adjusters inside the brake drum. It is a star wheel like a cars drum brake set up...turn a couple clicks (notches) at a time until the shoes just touch the drum and you can hear a very slight scrape from drums hittin shoes while spinning the drum.
Next, when both drums/shoes adjusted, climb under the middle of cart and follow the brake cables to where they both attatch to a braket which has a threaded rod going thru the middle of it. You want to tighten the nut on the threaded rod p to take "almost" all the slack out of the cables. Hold the threaded rod part with a pair of vice grips...Fairly easy..Keep it simple.
