    brake prob. on the \'87....

    well my brakes were fair, not good, but fair, up til about a week or two ago, now they squeek and all kinds of stuff, mainly up front, so i but her on stands and all the such, and while waiting for the front to cool down, i checked out the back.. and uh oh.. they dont even move when i press the brake. obviously i did something wrong when i replaced the cylinders and pads and such a couple months ago, the tread from when i turned the drum was still there and rust is forming on the right one. i bled the one with rust on it, bleeds good, the other one was almost endless air, then i got to some fluid, and intermittent air. both sides were previously bled when i installed the cylinders/pads/turn drums. so basically, what the hell is goin on? and if i were to take it into rapid brake and muffler, could there be a chance they could tell whats goin on by looking at it, because if then have to start taking things apart they said they'd charge like $35 for it. well im gonna go check the front, and hope its not as bad, thanks for the help, sorry its kinda long...

    Did the back brakes work fine when you put the new ones on?
