parking break not working

I was just wondering if anyone has replaced the parking break on a 2002 7.3L and if they have any instructions or recommendations. Also if anyone has some simple tests to see if its a linkage problem or just the parking break shoes are gone. Any advice or tips are greatly appreciated. Thank Yyu!

The only problem I see in the instructions is they are saying pack the rear bearings.
I was told you do not need to pack them on these rearends because they are lubed with gear lube and if you pack them you will damage the gears in the rearend.
Please correct me if I was informed wrong.
I have never packed them and they have been fine just being lubed with gear lube.
I own 2 fords with the same rearends I have worked on the rearend of one of them so far..

I've heard of some guys scuffing up the inside of the brake rotors so the parking shoes will bite better. I don't think it was designed well and many times they still don't hold the truck, giving them something to bite into will help

You're right, do not pack the bearings with grease. They are the "wet" design; to be lubricated from the gear oil in the rear end.
