More than likely you need to rebuild your right rear brake, you should bleed out your mastercylinder completely also, but I personaly would just buy a new rear brake caliper. As long as it hasn't warped out your rotar your good to go. (If you have any more problems after this its going to be in your mastercylinder. Sometimes when they get a litle old they just cant send brake fluid out or send to much out in some directions. You are supose to replace the entire body of brake fluid in your car or truck every year to 2 years no matter what.)
some people don't mind turning their rotars I think its bad personaly, if I have a bad rotar I go out and buy 2 new rotars and replace both. The reson is, is because after talking to a engineer one day, he explained that brakes were designed around the specific width of a rotar and to make them work correctly you need both left and right of which ever end you are talking about to stop as efficiently as the car was designed to. with the way traffic is today, I like stopping as fast as possible, these days.
