I've never messed with a parking brake before, but mine works like crap. Is there a way to adjust it? How hard would it be? And What would it involve?

Yes.... I belive the adjustment is a cross-bar above the driveshaft that connects the two cables to calipers with the single cable from the brake. Seems to me there is a long threaded rod and adjusts just like the clutch cable in the bell housing.

Hm, so all it would really involve is jacking it up and adjusting it via the long threaded rod? I wonder if my haynes manual tells how to do this.

I am nearly positive it works in this way :yes

I recall adjusting my 5.0 this way many a year ago and the driveshaft is somewhat in the way.
