Question EA Problems, help!

i have recently bought a 90 EA II spak, for the age of the car i think it's actually in pretty good condition and being my first car im bloody happy with it.... apart from 2 problems...

1) the handbreak, when you pull it on, it works bloody good, but when I release it, the right hand side wheel handbreak won't come off (the left is fine) i have looked at it many times and the spring that pulls it back is fine, nothing wrong with the cable.... any other ideas ?

2) the diff (or somehwhere in the rear end) when at speeds in excess of about 50km/h the is a continues noise back there somehwhere .... im driving along waiting for my whole back end to fall out or something .... there is oil in the diff ..... any other ideas ?
also, does anyone know how to identify what type of diff i have, the numbers on the tag on the diff say .
P/N87DA-4005-AA
RAT I10-292-SERN

I kinda fiqure that the buttom row is the ratio 2.92 on a sedan, correct ?

thanks.

noise from the back is prob jus good old diff whine - there is some oil that is meant to reduce it (a little bit anyway)- do a search in the garage for it. Other wise could be shot bearings

Yes that 10-292 is the 1:2.92 ratio.

handbreak problem fixed, kind of hard to explain how we fixed it and what the problem was, but yeah there was rust in the break caliper where it should of actually been lubricated.
