1998 Pontiac Grand Am 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 141000 miles
I have read previously asked questions and I would like to make sure I'm on the right track. I have a 98 grand am gt with 141000 miles and have had zero problems with it until now. (Besides usual wear parts) The rear brakes would grab after sitting for a while. Pump the brakes a few times before you take off and they behave fine. Today, in only in drive, the rear brakes grab so hard that the rear of the car will squat down until released. This happens only in drive and not reverse. GM service manual does not cover this situation. Am I on the right track by replacing the rear shoes, drums and adjusting hardware. Its all original minus shoes. Since I'm there should I replace the rear wheel cylinders as well? Will this solve the problem? Rubber o-ring for vacuum to the booster needs to be replaced as well (slight leak). Thanks Sean
have the same problem?
