Default Re: Rear Wheel Cylinder Leaking and more

I would look at the master cylinder. There are 2 separate rear proportioning valves mounted to it. One for each rear line. I would suspect one is bad and allowing full pressure to the wheel cylinder. You replaced the wheel cylinders a couple times and same problem... right?. I had a problem with the right rear locking up and smoking out the drum. I replaced EVERYTHING including the park brake cables, brake hoses, shoes (2 times), hardware kit, drums (3 times right side), wheel cylinders to no avail. Autozone parts too. The last thing in the system was the master cylinder that hadn't been changed. I went to local U-Pull yard and got a master cylinder with the 2 prop valves attached. Installed it and bled the brakes again and NO MORE problems.
