Sounds like you have air in the lines.  You need to bleed the air out at
each wheel.  You might as well wait until you rebuild the wheel cylinder
because you will have to bleed them after that any way.

Everytime I get into my truck I have to pump up the brakes.  The 
master cylinder has been rebuild, there is a leak on the back tire.  I 
am going to get a rebuild kit this week for it.  I have two questions.

1.  The rear end was in it when I got it.  I don't know what it is, but I 
know it is not stock.  Any suggestions on how to tell.

2.  Should this fix that problem with pumping brakes or is it 
something I am always going to have to do?
