MAKE SURE REAR BRAKES ARE ADJUSTED UP, AND THARE ARE WORKING. WITH ABS BRAKS ON REAR YOU CAN'T AJUST TO TIGHT, THE ABS LIGHT WILL COME ON.IF IT DOES BACK OFF THE ADJUSTMENT. More input: * Ford has a problem with front brakes in 99 Rangers, and other years, so much so that, according to the service rep I talked to, recall repairs would be a financial nightmare. The fix is to bring your truck to an authorized dealer for regular maintenance. Ford has come up with a "secret" silicon that stops the calipers from freezing up and eating your pads and discs. The authorized dealers have signed a paper stating that they won't disclose the type, name, etc, of the silicon. I had that same problem, went through 4 sets of pads and 3 discs between 1999 and 2004 until bringing it into a good dealer/maintenance shop. Haven't had a problem since. File ears of the brake pad until it sildes easly in the caliper
