    I have had a 1999 NPR since Christmas time and the rear brakes have never been adjusted. I called the dealer and they said there are two wheel cylinders per wheel plus another thing to adjust, and that it would cost about $80 - $90.

    I thought maybe I could learn how to do it so I could keep them in good braking condition. If anyone can help, I’d be grateful.

    The rear brakes on the N models are self adjusting.. However, they should be checked on a regular basis.
    On a normal light duty truck, the rear shoes are positioned to the front and rear. On the NPR and on larger trucks, the rear shoes are positioned top and bottom. There are two wheel cylinders per rear wheel.
    If you have access to a jack suitable to jack up the rear wheels, PM or e-mail me and I'll walk you thru the process.
