Default Brakes Dragging '07 Precedent

I had previously posted that I had lost a couple of MPH after a battery conversion and installing a 3" lift with 10" wheels. At that time someone suggested checking to make sure the brakes weren't dragging. Well, I finally got around to jacking it up and sure enough, the drivers side brake is dragging through about 1/2 of the rotation. I have plenty of slack in my cables and the brake pedal goes about 1 1/2 inches before there is any resistance. Where should I try to adjust to get the wheel spinning freely?

Here is a trick I read about: Install a passenger side brake cable on the left side, if you can't adjust it anymore. I read that, but never had to do it.

I think I got it. Took the drum off and clean it. Put it back on and is turning freely.

Steve,

That's a great trick. I have a 6" lift on my Precedent and the driver's side brake cable is significantly shorter. That makes it want to apply the brake sooner on that side on mine. However, I had to cut and weld the U-bolt plate to relocate the cable mount when lifting it and I should have modified/extended the passenger side U-bolt plate to take the slack out of that cable to make them apply more evenly. Just another one of those "need to get to" things!
