Re: Strange rear brake problem, help
Before you go through gallons of brake fluid like I did, try to gravity bleed them. Attach a hose and a receptical to each bleeder and open them up. Allow it to flow into the recepticles and keep an eye on the master cylinder fluid level. It could take more than an hour or so to do but this helped me out when I had bleeding problems.
Another trick used on the rear is to jack up the entire rear end, and put a "c" clamp on the brake cylinders compressing them. I was told of an air pocket inside the brake cylinder can make bleeding a PITA. Hope this helps....
