94 ford ranger- rear brakes form hell
hey guys... i have a evil one here.. i swear its possessed
its a 94 ranger, 2x4..
I got this truck with all the brakes rusted,( been sitting).. when you hit the brakes, the dr rear brake would lock up and would make thre truck dive hard....... all was rusted, rear wheel cyls leaking, etc.... total krap...
I have replaced: frt pads, rotors, bearings, seals.
rear drums(10" system fyi), shoes, hardware, wheel cylinders, rear brake lines, adjuster cables, cleaned up the adjusters,etc
Now its worse then ever!!!!!!
Still on light brake application, now both rear wheels lock up hard!! It wants to throw you through the windshield, worse then before. I have even tried a new master, thinking that the high pressure from the frts was leaking into the rear... no dice, same..
The rear brake get smoking hot, new drums are purple already! I have verified that all brakes work when pedal applied, the brakes DO NOT DRAG when not applied.. i thought mabye bad booster making thr brakes drag so i i even rechecked this with eng running and still no drag when brakes not applied..
I took the rears apart several times, have verified that all springs are in the proper spots, shoes are in the proper spots, etc etc etc.
SO wtf? that leaves me with only a few parts to guess.....
this truck has rabs only, could the rabs solenoid block/valve be bad causing too much pressure bieng applied to the rear??????? Thats my next best guess.
now i was also thinking that mabye the frt calipers or hoses were collapsed up frt causing the rears to overwork, but if that was the case they wouldnt have compressed easily when i did the brake job, and youd surly think that if the hoses were collapsed up front that the frt brakes would be dragging at least once hot and they are not....
What do you guys think??? haunted isnt it? plus its red, i have a thing about red cars man... long before i saw the movie used cars lol....
