Default 96 cherokee sport rear brakes?

my girl has a 96 cherokee sport. when you apply the brakes the rears squeal and lock up...and sometimes hold for a second and then break free when you start moving again. It seems to happen on both sides...I took the wheels and drums off and the pads look like they have 75% left...nothing looks out of order....but the drums pulled right off...I do not think the rears are adjusted right. Any Ideas what could be wrong ?Thanks in advance.


While I'm at it...the temp gauge does not move at all...I replaced the sending unit but it still isnt working. Anything else i can check? thanks again...Ray

couple things on the rear brakes, make sure the piston on the the wheel cylinder moves both ways. (push it in about 1/4 inch front and back. make sure the shoes move freely on the backing plates. also make sure your ebrake isnt stuck on due to seized cables. sorry i cant help with the temp gage prob except maybe try fueses

thinking about it some more. it could also be debris in the master or proportioning valve. how old and dirty is the fluid? when was it last flushed. or even a crushed brake line, along the frame or the axle

Look at the wheel cylinders and make sure they aren't seeping. Brake fluid on brake shoes can cause them to grab to the point where they will send you through the windshield, same thing with oil and grease. Before you start digging too deep I would just just sand down the brake shoes and clean the shoes and drums with brake cleaner.

Yup, rebuild em, new hardware/shoes/drums, plus bleed em while you are at it. It should fix it.

one problem I noticed with the rear drums it the pin that goes into the brake shoe on the bottom likes to wiggle free after time, I had to mushroom the back so it wouldn't fall out, It screwed up a lot when it falls out. next time i do the rears im going to weld that sucker in. from time to time when I stop it sounds like the shoes are slapping against the backing plate.
