confused EB brakes

Have a 91 EB falcon wagon and am having trouble with the brake system. Replaced all four pads, having trouble with the rears, only one side locks up when hand brake is on. Now have a spongy pedal, does anyone know how to fix. Have pulled apart callipers and everything works and adjusted handbrake cable but still have same result. Anyone have any ideas?
How can you tell it the proportioning valve has anything to do with this.

Re: EB brakes

1 the hand brake is a manual type system check to see if the cable is not frazen/bincing on the non working side but will still make the lever feel like it is tight, is the h/brake set evenly on both wheels.

2 If ur brake pedle is spungy try rebleading the system.

moore spasific info would help.

du u have any leaks

Re: EB brakes

pulled apart hand brake assembly on both sides of the rear brakes. Dont have any leaks. Both callipers work fine, re bleed the system so many times its not funny. Hand brake cable itself doesnt seem to be sticking, no kinks in the lines either. When applied, the passenger rear brakes engage but dont lock up when applying the hand brake, the drivers side rear does lock up. Have tried adjusting the hand brake cable but the results are the same.

Re: EB brakes

jack it up, apply handbrake and see if the wheel still spins freely.
proportional valves affect the amount of braking from front to back brakes.
in my dato 1600 i have the rear brakes lock up before the front for tailsliding in rallies

Re: EB brakes

what about the slides

i have to disagree with dangerxy the hand brake has nothing to do with the hydrolic system
