I have a 1999 TJ sport NO ABS for my wife & this summer I noticed the front brakes were engaging harder causing us to slide while backing the boat down a wet ramp.
Plus I had a pull to the left so I replaced all the rotors Drums & pads & all seems fine till I take it out on our first snow today.
The fronts lock up before I get any rear brakes.
I've done several brake jobs on maybe 200 to 250 cars & trucks in my life so I use a vacume power bleeder & I replaced all the rear brake springs & they all matched up fine.
My E brake has about 1.5 to 2 inchs of pull & it's engaged. So I feel there adjusted right.
I used the brake pedal plus the ebrake & it stops great no front lockup or sliding but if I just use the brake pedal alone the fronts lock up & cause the front to start sliding no mater how soft I try to engage them??
I'm going to go out & jack up the rear & see if I'm getting any rear brake from the pedal.
Is there a preportion valve I can adjust or is the master cylinder bad ??
I need to fix this or I know my wife will have a wreck at some point this winter
