Keep in most times a wheel cylinder goes bad because of corrosion inside the
bore.  This is caused by water in the brake fluid.  After you replace them,
suck all the fluid out of the master cylinder, replace it with new, and bleed
the complete system until it runs clear.  I change mine about every 2 years
in everything I own.
