1996 Rear brakes lock up super easy.

My rear brakes look up way to easy. I'm just applying brake and it will just lock up and skid in the rear. My brake light will come on from time to time, but never during the problem and rarely stays on for more than a few minutes. Even seconds most of the time. The brakes are spongy some times, but if the pump up really easy. My truck has come crazy rotors and pads in the front. So nothing there.

Have you checked to make sure that there are no leaks back there where fluid could get on the pads? Also, if you do remove the drums to look at things, make sure the rear shoes on each wheel have the longer friction material (as compared to the front shoes). Cheers!

Ok I'll pull the drums and look sometime this week. I have had the same thought. Just was wondering if it was a known and easy to fix problem. I know there has to be a proportioning valve somewhere, but it does seam to happen on one side.

Oh just as a update it turned out my ABS light was burnt out and was not working. Had to replace the master cylinder because the float level switch was bad. Fixed my problem. There is a easy way to get ABS codes out of these pickups. I had a ford service book to get it all figured out. Anyhow I know have even breaking.

There is a single wire plug under the glove box it has to be grounded or something and the ABS light will flash what ever codes are in the system

Yeah, but you really need the ford service book to figure them out and do the proper diagnostics.
