Customer: replied 2 years ago.
its been doing it for about 6 or 7 months . i have been replaceing the pads. the piston goes back in with no problem. first it was just the right rear and know its both sides. it has about 131000 miles on it. my first problem was the front brakes. they were pulsating when i would use my brakes. not a warped rotor pulsation but a braking pulsation. so i unpluged my front abs from the wheel sensors and my problem went away.now its in mt rear brakes
Expert:  Tim's Auto Repair replied 2 years ago.

ok

this sounds as if you may have a collapsed rubber brake hoses....sometimes they will do this and work like a check valve...sense it is both rear brakes..it may be the hose in the center of the rear end where it comes down from the body

thanks
