Is there somewhere (other than the rear drums) to adjust?

There is an adjuster nut in the centre console to take slack out of the cables.

Remove the seat heater switch (or the panel where they would normally be) and you will see the one cable from the lever go to a bar where there are two cables to each brake. Sometimes it is easier to remove the whole console (like 3-5 screws to do this).

You will still need to adjust the drums if the bar not pulling in an even manner.

You didn't mention the car, it would help.....
