Hi this could be a simple case of adjustment..you may have over adjusted the brake shoes, so when you put your foot on the brake, the RR wheels lock up and the others do not have time to get to there positions to stop the vehicle, you have to balance the brakes out to work correctly see picture for adjustment's

I have a 2005 ram 1500 4x4.when i put it four wheel drive high it feels like its in low and back tire on driver side skids


There's something seriously wrong in the transfer case or controls. It seems the rear driveshaft is locked up, and the front wheels are driving. The driver's side rear tire is skidding because it's trying to turn backward - rear passenger rear tire is going forward and rear differential has no option but to turn the driver tire in reverse (driveshaft locked). DON'T TRY TO DRIVE IT. Get it checked out and fixed.

1999 Ford Expedition . Door says use 255/70/16. Can I use 255/70/16 on Front and use 265/75/16 on Rear.Thanks


You can use the site for Discount Tires and look up tire specs, like how far the tire travels each revolution. This site will also have substitutes. What you need to be careful of is the anti-skid and anti-lock brakes. Also if you engage 4 wheel drive with different size tires on each end of your vehicle. The sensors make corrections when each tire rotates at a different speed than another.

Hi i have a 1998 gmc yukon it has disk brakes in the front and drume in the back. it has a 350 motor the problem is when your doing 5miles an houre or so when you step on the brake it like stops real short...


Is it all 4 wheels or just the rear wheels that lock up? If it's just the rear wheels it could be grease from leaking axle seals getting on the lining or brake fluid from leaking wheel cylinders.

Rear wheels on 2000 super duty f250 skid in reverse only


I hate to say it but it sounds like you have a severe problem in the rear end. Here are a couple of things i would do. First pull off your tires and wheels. Of course you need to put the truck on jack stands and block the wheels for safety! Disconnect your rear drive line so you know nothing from front diff or trans could be affecting it. Next spin the brake rotors by hand and inspect them for severe damage. Go forwards and backwards. Also listen in your rear end for grinding or clunking noises and also excessive play front foward to reverse. And last drain your oil and put your finger up inside the housing as far as you can and feel for large pieces that should not be there. This should give you a good idea if it is in your braking sytem your rear end or wether you need to start looking at front diff. or the trans. If all is good on rear end do the same thing for front diff and inspect it as well. Make sure you pull front driveline off!

Whatis the rear anti lock? The light has come on.


It only keeps you from locking up your brakes on icy roads. If the roads are slick or you have to slam on your brakes it keeps your brakes from locking and skidding so you don't have an accident.

Have you taken off the drum and checked for a leaking wheel cylinder? If brake fluid gets on the shoes they will have a tendency to lock up.

2002 tahoe breaks lock up during driving


It sounds like the rear calipers are bad. Raise the rear wheels and see if you can turn the tires. If you can't, open the bleeder. If you still can't replace the caliper. If you can turn the wheel after you open the bleeder, replace the brake hose to that wheel.
