That may be it. But the other symptom is on bleeding the brake fluid does not flow easily and the brake pedal goes very slowly to the floor with considerable pressure. The other rear is similar but not so slow while the front fluid gushes as would be expected.

the rear has longer travel,this is normal in bleeding all rear breaks.
