Yeah, not 100% that loosening the adjuster will work, but it might... I see heat, 8mm bolts and a BFH in this guy's future.

Prolly not if the shoes are stuck to the rotor... hammer time!

But I don't know how comfortable the OP is with doing brake work. Before he could remove the rear rotors to expose the parking brake shoes (using your two-bolt technique), he would also need to remove the main calipers and pads. He will need to decide if he's comfortable with that process.

I got them unstuck!!! I took off the ABS fuse and rocked the car a bit without turning it on. They broke free right away!

Nice!

Why did you have to remove the fuse?

Well, I rocked the car at first for a while but it wouldn't budge. Then I took off the ABS fuse and turned the key on and off a couple of time. Rocked it again for a bit and CRACK. The brakes came unlocked. I then put the fuse back on and now it's fine. I think the fuse had something to do with getting them unstuck

My guess is that they would have gotten unstuck even if you hadn't removed the fuse, but I could be wrong.

Regardless, good job.

I'm looking for new pads for my 04 STI's 90k service time. It's my DD probably looking at sintered pad. I'm not looking for specific suggestions (unless you want to suggest some), but rather a yelp for break pads.
Can anyone point me in the correct direction?

KNS Brakes (vendor WRXBrakes on NASIOC) has a lot of pad options and knows a lot about what they sell. Give them a call and they can both suggest and sell you a pad that fits your needs.
