No just learn to drive, drum brakes have been around literally FOREVER, hell cars used to use them in the front too Shocked

Disk brakes are great in the rear, but I highly doubt they would have helped much here.

My mustang has drums in the rear AND front, and it stops before I hit anything (Well, minus one time, but I admit it was my fault, and not the brakes! Finger )

I know that car disc brakes have a lot of electronics and what not crontroling them in these modern times, but to take a simplified look at disk brake they are stonger than drum brakes. So with increased stopping power comes the ability to lock them up when hard fast pressure is put on them.

I have never had the drums on my Jeep lock up. In fact I wish I had disks on all 4 wheels. The only time I have ever locked them up was during panic stops and then it was only for a split second untill the abs took over and started to "pump" the brakes.

In my opinion I would just start stopping earlier and modulate the brakes a little easier.

Yup pretyt much general conclusion would be that you need to drive better, and not blame the car for making you get in an accident.

And get you abs fixed, or stop driving the car, obviously there is something wrong with it- so fix it.

Stearing and Brakes are two things you DO NOT MESS AROUND WITH WHEN IT COMES TO A VEHICLE!!!

The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above-average drivers.

He wasnt talkin about them locking up under full break he was saying something along the lines that they grab even after light pressure my jeep does it but after u hit the brakes a few times it goes away and all is fine i do believe that is what grandjeeper was talking about unless i missed something....thats why i said discs wont do that as often or as bad

1fox2go, thank you. someone finally is getting what im saying. its not me, the jeep will sometimes just lock the rear up. if hit the brakes a couple times, it goes away. it just so happened that my jeep was having this accurance when someone stoped in front of me. i admit, i knew that my jeep sometimes will do this and i could have not drivin it that day, but as far as me hitting him, wasnt my fault.
by the way. i talk to my friend you has 2 tj's, 3cj's, 1yj's, and 2 zj's; he said that both of his zj will do this same thing, but none of the other cars with drums do it like the zj does. so i think like 1fox2go was sayin, it only zj's for some reason. well, this is my conclusion.
