I have a XJ cherokee I have renewed the front disc pads, the rear wheel cyls and shoes have been renewed about 14 weeks ago, the problem I have is under more than average braking, the rear brakes lock up, under normal braking it seems the front are not working as they should be. Can some one help with some info, Thank you.

That may be caused by shoes that are remanufactured, when they re-arc the backings they dont get the right amount on it and the shoe makes too much contact with the drum surface. Drums that have been machined and are now too large in diameter can cause the same problem, what kind of rear shoes did you use? Did they machine the rear drums? Remember cheaper parts are exactly that.
