Sounds like you need more front brake bias, so the front an rear brakes haven't been set up properly i guess, There's too much force on the fronts then the rears when applied, Also how's the tread on the tires? Has it got ABS?

new tires, no abs. rear brakes n rotors done last year. lock up started before i had brake hoses &calipers put on.

At leased you've got it diagnosed, Hope it's not an expensive part.
