I have a 1992 4wd. i just out on a new rotor, caliper and pass on the front passenger due an issue with it seizing up. seemed to fix that problem. i bled the system best i could and the brakes are little spongier and with very little braking, i can get the rear driver side wheel to lock up. i have rear drums. Do i just need to do a better job bleeding the system? it didn’t do this before i had to bleed the system

Good enough
Yes, it probably needs bled further. Changing out a caliper lets a lot of air in to the system.

The rears locking up seem to be a common Ranger trait, but usually it's the rear passenger side in my experience.

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.

Give me money.
Things mysteriously fixing themselves is more concerning to me than things actually braking....

Me too but oh well😂
Famous last words....We're gonna miss you buddy, when your brakes fail and you run off a bridge in the middle of the night somewhere on some backwoods dirtroad.

Seriously, you should look into it a little bit more, for safety.
