When was the last time the brake fluid was flushed? Spongy/unresponsive brakes can sometimes be due to moisture/air in the brake lines. You can take the wheel off and get someone to push the brake peddle and see if the brake caliper is moving at all. If it is moving, but not enough to stop the wheel, I'd recommend flushing the brake fluid. If the caliper is not moving at all, it could be the caliper itself (but its very unlikely that both would go bad at the same time)

Make sure the bleeder is open,and not plugged with rust,or road debris.
After this,place a 3/16 inch diameter rubber vacummn line over the bleeder valve or fitting and place it in a container of brake fluid to keep it from drawing air.Make full strokes of the brake peddle,and pull it all the way back with your hand.Loosen the mastercylinder cover,or cap and keep refilling,before the cylinder goes empty as this will induce more air.After you have most of the air purged out close off the bleeder, and pump the brakes 3 or more times holding pressure and have a buddy loosen the bleeder if there is still some air ,repeat more pressure bleeding with buddy,intill the brakes feel solid.You may have to adjust the brake shoes to the drum diameter to get a better pedal heith,so the front brakes will have adequate pressure too.Tap on the baking plate while adjusting the shoes.Best way is to lock them up and then turn the star wheel adjusters back both the same with no drag.Chek the emergency brake adjustment if too tight back off some or this will or may cause rear shoes to drag a bit and wear prematurely .

Does it do this all the time or only while running the air conditioner? There are two possibilities. One, when the a/c is running, water condenses on the evaporator and it has to drain out of the box via that hose, this is normal. Two, your heater core is leaking and this is where the water is coming from.

If the hose you are looking at attaches to or very near the bulge in the axle where the gearset is located, you are looking at the vent hose. You can attach it to the firewall, anywhere higher than the differential. Factory location is usually on the drivers side of the engine between the master cylinder and the engine on the firewall. They usually have a vent cap on the end to keep water out but when it falls down and hits the road the cap is often lost. You can make a cover using a small bottle cap and a 3" sheetrock screw drilled through it's center. Just slide the screw into the hose so the cap sits on top (it won't fit tightly and shouldn't but it will keep debris out of the hose)
If you have a differential control box on the right side axle with more than one vacuum hose on it (unusual on GC's) then you will need a vacuum diagram to find the connection points.
