Brake Trouble

Well I was driving my truck back from lunch today and my brake pedal got really stiff and i had to put a decent amount of pressure on it to get it to stop. I also noticed lately that sometimes my abs light stays on for longer than normal and also sometimes coming to a stop my rear brakes would lock up. Not sure if the second part is really part of my problems but i dunno. Any ideas what it could be?

Could be your vacuum pump going out or the brake booster is bad

I second the vacuum pump, take the line off and put your thumb over and see how much suction you got, I just had same problem. I paid About $130 for mine, 3 bolts and need to swap the pully wheel over.
