The parking brake is cable isn't it? That would allow it to work even though the rear brakes aren't.

If that's the case, in theory, fluid is not activating the cylinder in the drums. Definatly replace them. They're cheap anyway to buy

Find the problem first. you don't want to just throw parts at it that get expensive. there is also a rear brake Abs solenoid on the frame rail that could make the brakes work fine under normal conditions but make it act up during the test. it may have a bleeder screw as well

OB hit the nail on the head here!

First thing I would do is jack up each side with trans in neutral. Tighten each adjuster while rotating the wheel (there may be a tight spot, plus they can bind) having someone depress the brake pedal every now and again. When the wheel is too hard to move easily, back off the adjuster 4 or 5 clicks. Make sure wheel spins free. Repeat for the other side. Then test.

The adjuster can not back off if all is well. You will notice when you adjust them that they adjust up easy and back off hard. It is do to the machine on the adjuster tab. Rear brakes need adjustment every so often. Less if you regularly use the park break (most models).

see i knew someone else saw it like i did, i got locked up 2 weeks ago because of this....i asked the black guy (no offense to my morenos) and he at first looked at me like i'm stupid, then says in his exact words "read the fcuking paper bitch" i was like wow this guy is having a really bad day, either way he shouldn't have acted like that, so enyways i took a look at the paper and left and i saw it didn't specify anything i should visually/manually inspect so i go up to him and ask him "yo can you explain this to me a bit, well as much as you know at least" and then he just flipped out so and pushed me so i went off on him lol

so obviously i did'nt get an explanation but a night in county for battery lol
