    OK... Besides replacing another u-joint (I'm a pro at this now haha) I have one question on brakes... they have been fine till last weekend...... We did soem serious wheelin... lke 3 feet of mud.water.... was a blast.... now when i hit the brakes.. feels like i'm gonna go though the windshield... I'm pretty sure it's a back tire.. if I'm barely moving and i have to stop... just touching the pedal makes me lock up a tire... What the heck is goin on???
    PS... Blazers dont fit well between trees.... hahaha
    and stock jeeps dot belong in the mud.... HAHAHAHA

    I cant say for sure but you might have just got a bunch of crap up in the rear, i know my sisters burb had an oil leak in the rear once and it got all gummy and kept locking up a tire, i had to replace the seal clean out the drum and wire brush the crap off the shoe, (they were practically new). i'd yank it apart and see if you find anything.
