your 96 brake system was designed for drums on the rear. Your new rear disk brake calipers require more fluid volume than the origional drum wheel cylinders.

You might be able to fix the issue by modifying the proportioning valve, but you may have to swap out the master cylinder for one that was designed for rear disk brakes.
