Question about 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier
When the brakes are cold or wet the passenger rear brake only....locks up. Once the brakes have been used a few times ....no more lock up of the passenger rear only. I have replaced the following: brake shoes, wheel cylinders (bled the brake lines front and rear), new hardware, and new machined drums. Took great pains to adjust the "adjusters" evenly and also tried turning down the adjustment for the driver side only. None of this has solved the problem. Any ideas?
Same here guys damn brakes stick can only go in reverse. However i do find storing the car in a warm garagef yo can get there) usally will fix the problem after a few kicks to the bck ties whne the cars warmed up

Bad PROPORTION VALVE ... the back brakes should only be doing 30% of the stopping with a bad proportion valve it will send more pressure to the back during braking and cause it to lock up. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA
