I went out to do some testing.
THe car dives down when you put on the brakes hard leading me to believe that the front brakes are working. I did some hard stops and figured the skidding was occuring from the left rear. I got out and checked. I felt the wheels, they were all hot...I touched near the hub part of the discs, and I felt radiant heat from all of them. i got out my pen light and i noticed that the rear pads look kinda low. I am going to take them out and look tomorrow. I have a caliper rebuild set for the front, but I wanted to paint them first. I do have new rear lines. I bet that I need new rear pads. I will look tomorrow. Thanks
