I'd go over all the potential mechanical issues before pulling my hair
out over the hydraulics. The wheel cylinders in the back tend to blow
out or sometimes one of the rear shoes will snap out of the groove on
one end of the wheel cylinder, etc...I've go over fronts and backs with
a fine toothed comb first. Also, if it turns out to be the booster,
perhaps you got a bad rebuild?
