Exactly why I converted to the Mustang GT rear disc brakes. No more of that frozen brake nonsense.

...I actually read somewhere online ( of course I can not find it now), that this is only prone to Ford trucks with drum brakes and this has been an issue in the past. The girlfriends deceased father apparently had the same problem years ago with a f150.

I back up and park on a hill at work. If it’s cold and wet out and my truck is sitting on that hill for a few hours or more, the rear brakes are locked. Solution? Just back up, upwards on the hill a couple inches and I can hear a sort of light click noise and they’ve unlocked. If I try to go forward without doing this, I feel a quick binding and a sudden, loud release. Loud like I wonder if I kept doing that, if the brake shoe would start breaking apart.

Also, I usually hear a little squeak noise, after I take my foot off the brakes, coming from the rear brakes. Not sure what it is, it’s done it for years, everything works fine.
