Check the caliper slides (may be frozen) should slide freely to compensate for brake pad wear

You still have air in the back brake lines or they are not adjusted properly which is making the front brakes take the full load

I replaced the front brakes on my 92 camaro, it still pulls hard right when u hit the brakes??

well it does depend on the fact of if you replaced the brakes or not because after you replace your brakes you have to bleed them again or else they won't work properly if im correct

All cars have the brake system designed to make a loud screeching noise when the pads get low. Most people do not do the proper maintenance on their brakes, which is lubing of parts. This maintenance ensures even wear of the pads and or any problems will be noticed. Most braking is done with the front brakes so rear brakes tend to last much longer. Five plus years before having to do the rear brakes is not unusual.

Rear brakes do not have to be replaced too often. It's really hard to tell without looking at it. What you can do is to replace front brakes and test drive it, if you feel that your car brakes works just fine you do not need to replace rear brake shoes.

You did not do the whole system properly and I can't guess why without having been there when you did it. Light means that the front and back systems pressures are not balanced. Proportioning rod in the metering block is pushing from the higher system causing the switch to be actuated. Learn how brakes work before you do anything to anything to do with brakes. Brakes MUST be serviced in their entirety or not messed with at all! Take it to a brake shop!

It is a cause and effect thing. Was the other axle inspected if all the brakes, front and rear, were not replaced? Can you tell where it's coming from at all? Is the noise identical from when before the brakes were replaced? Year, make, model and mileage would help as well. Drum on rear? Don't assume the brakes were done correctly. Believe it or not, I have done a few where someone put the pads in backwards with the backing plate against the rotor. If someone worked on it for you, take it back to them and complain.

Front pads (disc brakes) Rear shoes (drum brakes)

you have out of round brake rotors, they can be replaced or machined if they are thick enough, the front pads should be replaced or placed on sand paper on a flat suface to remove the glazing so they will seat properly to freshly machined surface

Usually the rear pads or brake shoes depending on whether or not the back brakes are disc or drum brakes will last 2 times longer the the front brakes. 75% of your braking is done by the front brakes. For example, if you have 60,000 miles and your front pads need to be replaced the rear ones will only be about 1/2 worn out.

There are a couple of possibilities. One is lack of lubrication of brake system moving and/or contact points such as between back of pads and caliper housing and/or piston. Another could be that, the rotors/discs are warped/distorted and need to be machined or more preferably, replaced. If you replaced the front brakes (example) and you still have a squeal, it's possible it may be coming from the rear brakes.

Did you bleed the entire brake system? First must bleed the rear right, the rear left, then front right and then front left. Don't ask me why but it is what it is. I have a 74 VW Bug

your rotors on the front are warped. they need to be turned or replaced.

sorry i cant answer that ? but just curious I have a 2003 Pontiac grand am se and the front brakes have to be replaced about every 7 months, are you haviing any problem like that with your car?

Where can I find a diagram of a 1999 Ford F250 front disc brakes before I attempt to install them?

The abs light stays on when a malfunction has been detected. You need to have the system checked for codes with a scan tool.

your back brakes are supposed to apply before your front brakes, they do this so your car does not take a nose dive every time you apply the brakes. but if it is very noticeable i would check the adjustment of your rear brakes (if you have a disc/drum setup) or i would check your proportioning valve if they are locking up

the emergency brake needs to be adjusted, rear brakes should wear about 3 times slower than front

On the 4WD SR5 truck, front brakes are disc, and rear brakes are drum.

Only if the rear system was opened where it may have gotten air in the lines.

It sounds like there is a problem with the proportioning valve. I highly advise you to seek professional help with this repair. This is a very dangerous situation and needs to be corrected ASAP.

your brake system has air in it and needs bleeding. new calipers are a real hard to bleed
