    Funny that you chimed in with this. I worked at a big multi franchise dealer in the 80s. All the A bodies did that for as long as that body style lasted. You could reduce the symptom by baking the shoes a bit. A few consecutive stops from 60 MPH using only the parking brake would usually suffice.

    Nice start. I'm kind of eyeing a mini lathe now days for similar projects. I know that is a slipper slope becomes next after that I'll be looking for an end mil, lol.

    Thanks. This is the second one I have put together. I also run an RX can in my wife’s 15 Yukon. The DI engines need a can more than the earlier ones.
