Rear brakes work.... sometimes.

My brakes have been very weak for the last few monthes and I've finally decided to do something about it.

I assumed I just needed new pads and rotors (which I do) but my rear brakes dont seem to work well. When I brake, the car nose dives a fair bit. Also after I put the handbrake on and reverse to let them self-adjust, the car stops MUCH better.

Do I need to adjust my rear brakes somehow? If so how?

take the rear wheels off and there should be like a little rubber plug on the bottom of the drum no need to take it off and u can turn the adjuster or u can take the drum off and you will see the star wheel at the bottom of the drum and you turn that to adjust the rear brakes
