Parking Brake Adjustment

Is it easy to adjust a parking brake? On mine I have to pull it way up to engage it and sometimes when I push it down it doesn't shut the light off unless I give it a tap. I assume the cable is loose? Any help is appreciated.
Are there shocks that I can addjust up and down like my friends LX460? That would be very cool!

it is but you have to get dirty. 13mm and 17mm (IIRC). adjust to 3 clicks. going to have jack a whell up to get drum to spin by hand. use adjuster nut on drum to tighten til won't spin, than back off a click or two til it will without resistance. that is using 13mm wrench
if you fell you need to shorten cable, then it gets more painful. well covered in manual.
