parking brake repaired!

I have had problems with my parking brake ever since the shoes delaminated inside the rotor. I installed aftermarket shoes, and new OEM cables. It would not hold on a hill with the adjustment adjusted as tight as it would go.

I recently purchased OEM shoes and hardware (4 springs on each side). Now the parking brake acts like new. 2 clicks and it holds on any hill. My problem seemed to be the aftermarket shoes.

I know others are having similar issues, so I thought I should post.

Aftermarket pads (Scantech) do not work well. I had the same exact problem, as have many others. Swapped back to OEMs and have had no problems since. I can't speak for the Meyle pads, but avoid the Scantech. No amount of adjusting will make them hold like the OEMs.
That's so weird because the aftermarket Scantech pads work great on my car.
