    My load sensor proportional value is not functioning. The Spring on it hangs limp; what does this mean?

    followup Q: any option other than remove&replace??
    where to get one? RockAuto? or where can i buy one?

    I want to replace rear brake lines while I am down under there.
    Opinions on standard ones VS flex lines? Cost diff? worth it?

    This SHO is in very good shape; however it does have 240K miles on it, fyi.

    If the car is jacked up in the air then yes the spring will be loose. Are you not getting any rear brake function? Usually its the holders on the rear flex lines to the calipers rusting until they squeeze the flex lines closed.

    Are the rear brakes locking too easily?
