I just went through the same issue... mine ended up being a rotted our e-brake backing plate. Long story short Dorman makes aftermarket backing plated for up to an 04' truck. 05' + are at the mercy of the dealer, and get ready to spend 500+ dollars for parts.

Best of Luck... that's what I thought too. After several failed attempts at adjusting I pulled the rotor off and saw that my backing plates were rotted.

Please note that even after I Replaced both sides (brand new shoes, backing plates, hardware, adjusters, etc...) new rotors, and new pads while I was there the E-Brake still didn't have an "OEM Feel" and the ebrake was quite low. It did hold the truck, but I think the cables may have stretched as well.
