Engine Size: 4.3
Trans: Automatic

Issue / Question:
My car’s right rear brake locks up occasionally. The issue is not noticeable on dry pavement. However on dirt, grass, or wet pavement, the right rear brake will skid with just normal application of the brake, but not all of the time. My car stops very well, but it just feels like the right rear brake is grabbing ahead of the other 3.

Answer:
Sounds like a piston is sticking in a wheel cylinder or a rear brake shoe may be on backwards, with the primary and secondary shoes reversed.
