Re: Rear brake locking up
Be sure to replace your brake hoses, front and rear. They can fail internally and trap pressure, causing the brakes to lock, especially the rears.
Rebuild kits, including both rubber goods and metal, are available for the wheel cylinders.Depending upon their condition, the wheel cylinders can be honed and the cups replaced. Adding parts and labor to rebuild, it probably will be around the same price to just replace with new cylinders. I have rebuilt some in the past, with mixed results.
