So i re-did my brakes all around painted them flat back,new satisfied brakes pro-cermaic pads, fully flushed all the fluide out and stainless lines for the front. Well i of course took apart the calipers on on 4 corners and cleaned and relubed them up. Now I didnt notice before but it seems my front driverside caliper is sticking. It was doing it before but i thought it was fixed once i had cleaned it out and relubed everything.
So the question is, what the heck do i gotta do now? take it off again clean it again and relube the slides etc.... it works fine just doesnt fully release out. And is the only one that does it. Basicly I think i know what i gotta do i am just bitching cause its being a bitch.
Could be partially seized in the inside. Time for a cobra brake upgrade. You might be able to pick up a set of used front calipers for a decent price. I sold my oem brake calipers for 80 at a swap meet.
Like i said in some other posts i don't need them and don't want the extra weight, plus i just did a full fluide and brake upgrade on mine. Just seeing if anyone has any inside tips etc... for what else i might of missed. I will take them apart tomarrow morning and see why its sticking on that side.
You might of put the pads on the wrong side. If you look at the pads they have round bumps on them. If the pads are not on the correct way the bump will cause the pad to be slightly cocked causing it to bind on the rotor. Look at the surface where the rear of the pad meets the rotor.
I couldnt find Mustang specific pads but here is a pic of what Im talking about. Another thing could be air in your lines or Master cylinder if you let it get to low.
