    You said pads and shoes . If you did this yourself did you reajust rear shoes back up to the drums ? If not what happens is you have to pump the brakes to get the shoes all the way out to the drums . The front disk will do it on their own but the drums on the back have to be set up once at first and then they will do it on their own too if everything was put together right . Good place to start and will make ABS light come on too .

    thanks Rick. the shoes were adjusted right. discovered now that there is no fluid pressure from the ABS lines to the rear brakes.
