had a pick-up truck come in with what was reported as the rear brakes smoking, my technician checked it out and found the booster was in peices and the caliper was seizing up on one of the rear brakes. he replaced the booster, took it for a test drive only to find the brakes lock up at the slightest pressure. he since has replaced that booster, abs control unit and even the check valve on the booster and still the slightest pressure and the pickup is putting you throught the windsheild. the tech is currently telling me that this is normal, but the customer and i differ from his analysis. any help would be appreciated.
