1998 Chevy Truck 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
My rear passenger brake is locking on. This happens mostly as I start off. If I back up it usually unlocks. I have also noticed that it is starting to grab when Im driving. I have recently replaced both rear drums and shoes along with kits. While this truck has 246000 kilometers it has been well maintained. My local jobber say it could be the emergency brake cables or the clutches(?) Not sure what he meant by the clutches. He pulled the cables and stretched them about. It worked fine for an hour however it is now as bad as ever and has now started to grab when im driving. I noticed it grabbing at around 80 kilometers(50 miles) an hour.
