It could be a couple of things..Either you have a fluid leak and its getting on the brake pads making them grab or it could be the abs system itself.. There is a speed sensor on the rear axle which also controls the abs.. That can be changed easily and isnt too expensive.. Kip

The rear brakes may have some oil on them which will cause sticking/grabbing braking. Usually from leaking brake cylinders or calipers/wheel bearing seals. Pull each wheel and check. Another problem could be a bad 'U' joint at either end of the driveline. Make sure the emergency/parking brake is fully released. It's possible that a rear axle bearing is going out, but they will make a rough sound when moving. Make sure that the spring mounts are tight. Check the oil level in the differential. Shift from forward to reverse several times to see if this reoccurs each time. Get someone to watch and listen while you do this. Hope this helps!
