Any brake problem is serious. Life and death serious. I do not mean to scare you, but may I ask if the 'locking up" is happening in the front or rear brakes? Let's start with that, okay?

Drum brakes can lock up. If that 96 has anti-lock this should not be happening. I would replace the shoes or at least adjust them.
