Yes. Rears are generally thinner. Fronts do majority of braking and are considerably thicker.

I have 09 buick lacrosse and my brakes lockes up what could cause this


Could be caliper/s or brake hose/s. Easiest way to tell is release the brake hose from the caliper. If it releases, the hose is clogged/collapsed. If it doesn't it's the caliper.

Fleetwood problem


Pretty normal to not be able to lock the brakes without the assistance of the booster, it'll take a lot of pedal pressure without it. It's also normal for the pedal to feel harder without the booster, this goes for any car/truck with power brakes. Try it with any other car you have and you'll see.

I've worked on several old Cadis but don't recall what year they started using front disc. If it's been changed from drum to disc you'll likely need a different proportioning valve and possibly a different master to get them to work right. Talk to the seller and ask if the brake feel changed when they replaced the master and if they changed any other parts.

BRAKE JAM


If releasing the parking brake does not get the rear wheels to release, then you either have a parking brake cable that is badly corroded and sticking, or you have internal problems in the rear brakes like broken springs, etc that are jamming the brakes. You will have to inspect your rear brakes and paking brake cables to find out which it is.

You should be able to pull on the parking brake cable and get movement easily. It depends on if your Caravan is equipped with front disc and rear drum brakes or if it is equipped with 4-wheel disc brakes. If it has 4-wheel disc, then you could also have a bad rear caliper.

1996 camery station wagon , 4 wheel disc brakes. need to replace brake lines in the rear. what is the name of the junction block , with the actuator in the rear? All 4 rear lines go to and leave this...


Hello, first you Toyota has dual braking system. It goes like this: Left front brake with right rear brake, the right front brake with left rear brake. This a braking safety system that has been incorporated in auto/trucks for a few years now. If brake line is broken. loose wheel caliper, blow caliper piston, any thing that happens to the brake system. You will still have two wheels that have their hydraulic system. Also, the emergency brake will a manual system for the rear wheels.


Why do you need to change your auto brake lines? That valve you are talking about is a load stabilizer valve. It used to limit the amount of hydraulic fluid as more load is place in the rear of your Toyota. Example. by press on the brake pedal, it activates hydraulic pressure to the four wheel disk braking system. The braking system needs to stabilize the hydraulic pressure to the wheel to keep the vehicle moving in a forward motions. Now, by loading the rear of the vehicle this transfer the load disposition of the vehicle by making it heaver in the rear. Therefore, the load compensator valve limit the amount of hydraulic pressure to the rear brakes.



Another thing to remember about this rear load valve, they will get plugged. and the vehicle will not have enough braking pressure for the rear wheels. I hope I answer you question about this load portion valve in the rear of Toyota. GB...stewbison

What kind of brakes are on this car (front and rear)?


It depends on model. Most cars have disc brakes in front and drum brakes in rear. Some cars have disc brakes front and rear. Look through the front wheels, you will see the front disc, now look at the rear, if it looks like the fronts, you have 4 wheel disc brakes, if you cant see anything behind the wheel, it has rear drum brakes.

It's pretty simple. The front line from the mastercylinder should go into a tee, then from the tee to each front wheel. The rear the same way. No proportioning valve is needed with 4-wheel discs.
