On my 98.5 my front driver side caliper had hung up and destroyed my rotor and pads. Today I replaced the rotor, caliper and pads. I thought everything was ok, drove 35 min. to work, got out and smoke was coming off the new assem. Still have to drive it home tonight and check it in the morning. Note I used rebuilt caliper and new :banghead:rebestos pads. The 2 places where the caliper rest on I sanded clean and used never seize on them. I am going to remove the 2 mount bolts and lube everything that slides. Any thoughts? Thanks

Probablly the flex brake hose has internally failed and holding pressure.
