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

Lets say you do not have ABS. If that is the case, is it the front or the back brakes. If it is the back brakes, then it is possible that the brake springs have to be changed, that is of course if you have drum brakes. If you have 4 wheel disk, then its another problem, possible the brake equilizer valve has to be replaced.

When you replace your front brake pads should you also replace your rears?

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.

What would cause a loud grinding noise when brakes are applied even after brakes parts has been replaced?

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.

What is the problem if the brakes squeal after changed?

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.

After bleeding your front disc brakes 74 Spitfire the brakes work very well except they don't release The pads on both front wheels stay locked to the rotor What did you do wrong?

AnswerThey won't move back very much. If you can spin the wheel, that's about all you'll get. If it still rubs or hangs up, you may need to clean and lube or possibly even replace the callipers.My '89 Firebird front disk brakes won't release for about 15 seconds after applying brakes.Replaced calipers with new, no change.Replaced master cylinder with new, no change.Next to try is the combination valve unit since this is where the two front lines connect.Since this problem is affecting both front brakes I'm discounting a brake line problem.

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
