Re: My Brakes...well
Check rear brake pads to see if they're oil soaked,
(If you have front disc brakes)Check front rotors to see if they're pitted or were very rusty at one time, if so turn them,
Check the front pads to see if one is wearing more than the other, if so your caliper is sticking, remove and clean/replace the slider pins,
Your antilock solenoid has an internal leak (just kidding, you don't have that, but it was on my '88 pickup),
I usually adjust my drum brakes to where I can just get the drums on and then the adjustment mechanism can take over and I have good brakes.
These are the cheaper things to check first, then you get into replacing flexable brake lines and master cylinder.
