Unhappy Front driver side brake STILL dragging

A couple of days ago I posted about my brake dragging after using. It destroyed my rotor and pads so I replaced caliper, rotor and pads and was still dragging. It was smoking after driving to work. Three people said it was probably a bad rubber flex hose, so I replaced that-still hangs up. I took the slide pins out and lubed them good, stll hangs up. The other side is fine. I read in another thread about the hydroboost and it said to test it to see if it is working. With motor not running press the pedal down three times and apply aprox. 40lb of pressure and start motor. Pedal should press down and then try to kick up and it did. The pedal also returns up slowly. This is my main ride so I need some more advise!!!! Thanks Mark

You could also have crud (rust, water, etc) that has built up in the brake lines. You might consider giving it a good (pressurized) flush if you haven't done so in recent history. A small piece of trash can sure cause big problems. Good luck.

the block ur speaking of is in the abs unit itself on these trucks im almost postitve. we have a 3 channel abs. 1 line to the rear and 2 to the front.

once i thought about it cant be the master cylinder. because of how the system works. it would have to be the lines, abs unit

could possibly be a wheel bearing way out of wack but i doubt it.


do you have an abs light up or anything?

also when you replace rotors you cant just replace just one side. or pads for that instance

if you replace one side that leaves one side thicker by a couple thousands of a inch. which would make the brakes drag on the thicker side.


if no abs unit presence and you havent replaced the other side

id get a new rotor for the other side and new pads and have them machined down a little bit to match

You don't tell us anything about your truck so I am guessing you have rear drum brakes, If not, please correct. But just for the sake of interest, my truck did this the day I drove it new off the lot. After a lot of trips back and forth to the dealer for corrective repair, and being told I did not know how to drive a truck properly, some tech with half a wit discovered that both rear brake drums came from the factory out-of-round and that ended up playing merry hell causing extreme pulsing to whole brake system. It blued and scored the rotors, trashed pads and calipers not to mention damage to the rears as well. Doesn't hurt to check the rears while you are at it.

Do you have rear only abs or 3 channel??
Drive the truck around block to get brakes to normal operating temp (not overheating) and raise the front wheels. Have a helper apply brakes while you test for release.
Is it possible the caliper is not installed correctlly?? the stainless steel slides, ect. If you had significantlly different pads, ect on front that could cause. generally not critical and would not cause one to drag/overheat.. Possible the new caliper is bad??

This certainly sounds like a bad brake hose however I see that you replaced it.Could also be a smashed steel brake line.Whatever the problem is it is restricted to the drivers side. I would trace out the brake lines,check the abs system,and it could be that you got a bad rebuilt caliper,would not be the firs time that this has happened to me. Good Luck

I thought about the possibility of the line coming from the proportioning valve leading into the top of the new hose being clogged BUT I have the 2 wheel ABS system. The brake hose coming from the passenger side taps into the side of the hose I just replaced. SOOO if there was a clog in the hose feeding the drivers side the pass side would be affected also. With all that said I am still going to blow out the whole front brake hose system.

just for fun try switching caliper left to right and see if the sticking caliper problem moves as well, if it does the new caliper would be faulty
