Default spongy brakes

new to the fourms here, I have a 2003 ram 1500, the other day I was backing up and when I pressed the brakes the rear brakes locked ,I pulled foward and then back and they worked fine, problem now is the brakes are real spongy. Thinking of bleeding them to see if it fixes the problem but not sure, also do the abs need bleeding? if so how is it done
Thanks

I would take it in for a flush and fluid replacement. It would probably fix your issues.
