Customer Question
I have a Toyota 2006...
I have a Toyota 2006 PU with grabby brakes. Had the rotors machined and new shoes, but still grabs. Is there a valve on the master cylinder that might be plugged that could cause the problem?

good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist

you did not mention if you had the rear drums cut. that will cause the grabby brakes. otherwise there is a load sensing valve at the rear that can also cause the issue as well.
