I HAVE GOT A 2002 CHEVY EXPRESS 1500 VAN AND THE REAR BRAKES ARE NOT WORKING AT ALL. I PUT NEW WHEEL CYLINDERS ON THE BACK BLED AND AJUSTED BRAKES BUT IT DID NOT MAKE ANY DIFFERANCE AT ALL. IT DOES HAVE ANTILOCK BRAKES ON FRONT BUT THAT SEEMS TO BE OK. I DROVE THE VAN ON A SNOW COVERED ROAD I OPENED THE DOOR AND WATCHED THE REAR WHEELS WHEN I LOCKED THE BRAKES UP AND THE REAR WHEELS JUST KEPT ON ROLLING NOT STOPPING AT ALL. ANYBODY GOT ANY IDEAS– HELP

Th rear brakes normally have much less braking power than the front, and they may not lock up, so you may not have a problem. Is there a braking performance problem that led you to believe something is wrong?

YES YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE REAR BRAKES HAVING LESS PRESSURE THAN THE FRONT BUT THE BRAKES JUST SLIDE THE FRONT WHEELS ON ICE YES THERE IS A PROBLEM BELIEVE ME THE REAR BRAKES SHOULD LOCK UP WHEN I SLAM ON THE BRAKES ON ICE. I AM THINKING IT MIGHT BE THE COMBINATON VALVE OR MASTER CYLINDER JUST DONT KNOW
