i put all new brakes, calipers, hoses pads,master cylinder and new brake lines i even by passed my abs unit and i am still having trouble with my front brakes locking up when i ran new line from the master to the rear and master to the front with a 3/16 line front and rear but i think my back should of been 1/4 inch line would this cause the front brakes to lock up my rears are working fine they don't lock up like the front but some how i am getting too much presser to the front brakes i have to let the truck sit till the brakes cool down then start driving again
Because you say you have to let the truck sit till the brakes cool down sounds more like they are not releasing, not locking up. There is a difference. If they are locking up, they will skid your wheels. Is the problem with both front brakes or just one side?
