    I just did my rear brakes and rotors. Noticed the parking brakes were pretty ugly so I changed them as well. The adjustment wheel is all the way down and the parking brake is not engaged at all but the new rear drivers side parking brake is rubbing the inside of the new rotor when I drive. Passenger side is fine. I took it all back apart and to recheck and make sure all was put together correctly and all is as it should be. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Let it slightly drag itself until there is enough clearance. There is enough clamp stroke that the shoe will stop the rotor when engaged even without a pad.

    So just drive it and let it rub for a while?

    You can accelerate the process by lightly depressing the parking brake at a reasonable speed and letting it bring you to a few stops.
