Check your rear drum brakes for a blown wheel cylinder! Your shoes might be completely soaked.

$370 for a master cylinder? That'* not right. Even if the wheel cylinders, and shoes were replaced, and of courre bleed, thta still would not be right.

Sometimes you gotta just suck it up and pay. I won't rip ya for that one. Brakes are brakes, and you NEED them in tip top shape. Our yukon has gone thru rotors 2x now, and i drove it this last time with them bad. Stopping off the freeway from 75 MPH was scary.... Heck just slowwing down on the freeway a little made the car shudder.
