1993 Jeep Wrangler 6 cyl Four Wheel Drive Automatic 76000 miles
I changed the front calipers and pads because they were severely burnt from an obvious seizing problem.
I also found partially restricted brake hoses on both sides which I assumed caused the burnt calipers & pads (discs not releasing all the way). So I changed both hoses. Then after an entire system bleed and a road test, the rear shoes refuse to activate and the vehicle lurches foward slightly when the brakes are applied. You could just feel the weakness of the rear shoes not applying. It is obviously a strained & uneven stop using only the front discs. Out of desperation I proceeded to change the proportioning valve that sits directly below the master cylinder. No luck. Same thing.
What seemed like a simple caliper/brk hose job has turned into a nightmare. Any thoughts on this?
have the same problem?
