Re: Rear brakes lock up

Yes,I made sure the shoes were indexed properly ,really sucks because it has a great pedal and stops straight but if you give it just a little too much pedal she locks up,really bad on wet roads ,I can deal with it but as not as far as letting my wife or kids drive it for now

Re: Rear brakes lock up

Leveled front end up and inch ,no change
Only thing it can be is the Proportioning valve or possibly the rear brake line collapsing and holding pressure on rear brakes

Re: Rear brakes lock up

Might I suggest you back the emergency cables off at the equalizer bar to see if your cables are to short.

Re: Rear brakes lock up

Well like I said before ,only thing left Is proportioning valve ,I pulled the one in the Jeep apart and it looks good ,the plunger/O-ring on the piston is sloppy though,not sure how tight it should be on the piston for the residual valve itself ,I will have a new valve Tuesday,if this doesn’t work,I’ll just plumb in a manual proportioning valve on the rear brake line and just adjust it myself

Re: Rear brakes lock up

Well I added a new proportioning valve ,zero difference ,everything I have changed has done zero difference . I Plummer in an adjustable Proportioning Valve and it stops on a dime,no rear lock up whatsoever,stops like my old JK Rubicon did ,maybe better. Wish I could post pictures of the setup
