either a brake or an axle problem, lookin for direction

Hi all,

I've got a weird one.. occasionally when I first start driving my front brakes will lock with only slight pressure, only happens while going forward, usually after rain but its way more intense than a bit of rust on the rotors. There are actually skidmarks in my driveway! I replaced the pads and cleaned the rotors and the problem went away but came back after a few days. I suspect something oily is getting on the rotors but I can't find any signs of anything leaking.

..My current thought is axle seals? any other ideas?

Try bleeding the passenger side rear wheel . If you have a hard time getting fluid out of it , you may have a blocked /collapsed line , or a problem with the proportioning valve.
