I'm guessing your rear calipers don't work, which is common for them to go bad after about 80k miles. Just go get some new ones, bleed your brake fluid, I'd recommend a full flush, and go ahead and get some new pads and have the rotors turned or replaced. That should do it.
Lately I've been hearing a lot of bad things about rebuild kits for those calipers, either nothing fits or they just don't work, it'll probably jsut be worth it to get some new ones. I think I paid about $80 for a pair and then painted them before I put them on the car.
