Brakes problem
1995 Chevy Van V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 85500 miles

Just purchased this van. Maintenance records indicate master cylinder has been replaced TWICE. Couldn't find specific thread regarding this so I'm asking new question. Also, when in traffic and slightly release brake pedal, rear brakes "groan" as they are releasing. Any thoughts. System improperly bled? Need larger master cylinder bore? Rear brake release springs weak? Appreciate a reply.

Do you

Thanks Rasmataz. Thought I'd open up the rear brakes for a peek and found a missing return spring on right rear. Replaced spring and "groan" noise eliminated. Thqanks for your help.
