Question about 1999 Jeep Cherokee
I have a 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee (about 80k) miles that has had serious problems (previous owner) - just got the CV joints and a tie rod replaced. The rear brakes were locking up sporadically. I took this to a mechanic and they changed pads, rotors, and serviced "caliper slides". Jeep drove fine for a few days, then passenger rear locked up while on the highway - smoking when I got home! I had this problem previously - we replaced the brake lines (rubber ones) directly over the brakes (both sides were locking up then). This seemed to take care of the problem for a little while and then they began to lock up again. This seems like a mystery problem no one can solve.
Todays sports utility vehicles are equiped with a proportioning valve. they are usualy located at the rear of the vehicle. this valve regulates the flow of brake fluid to the calipers. most suv`s have a ride control arm on them that is linked to the rear suspension to apply more braking force to the rear wheels in a harsh or sudden stop. if this valve is bad or malfunctioning even body roll can redirect brake fluid to the rear wheels causing them to lock up., hope this info helps
