Brake Issue

well i have a problem with my brakes. i have the rear abs light coming on about every other time i drive it.


well about 3 weeks ago i get new rotors and pad for the rear disc and yesterday i finally picked up my new front rotors and pads. well got everything installed and took it for a drive. well the brakes were spoungy as hell and werent working well at all. so this morning i bleed the brakes and they got better but.


the problem is i step on the brakes and the rears lock up but the fronts dont.


the truck had a new master cyl when the explorer axle was installed about a year ago.


94 ranger 4x4 4.0 5 speed

thanks for all the help guys

well it has to be the porpotioniong valve or or the front calipers but im betting its the valve. i replaced the master cyl today with a free one under life time warranty. so tomorrow im going to try and find the p valve and replace it.
