Several reasons. Your rotors could be warped. Its possible the proportioning valve isn't working correctly. Try a different type brake pad material. Make sure your wheel bearings are not too loose.


have you cleaned and lubed the caliper rails?

Answer -

One of the most overlooked tasks when performing brake maintenance is the floating pins that the caliper mounts to. Make sure they are clean and well lubricated.

Why do the rear disc brakes stay locked up after you let off the pedal on a 1999 Chevy blazer s-10?

usually either the calipers have dirt in them and need to be replaced or the rubber lines leading to them have collapsed inside and need to be replaced.. really kills the gas mileage uh!! chevy has had problems with rear discs on these vehicles,70%of braking is on the front,30% on the rear. therefore the pistons get little use and stick. there are stainless sliders the calipers move on,you need to clean and lubricate them,this should stop the brakes from dragging. I have a 1999 Blazer and my rear brakes were grinding so I replaced the pads and rotors but had the same sticking problem. They dont offer a rebuild kit for my calipers so I had to replace the calipers also.

How do you know when the calipers need to be changed?

They Seldom Go Bad. Inspect For Leakage And Sticking. If Yours Stuck Replace It, And The Brake Hose Also. One Reason We Have Trouble With Calipers Is Not The Caliper But The Brake Hose. The Hose Will Rot On The Inside Not Allowing The Brake Fluid To Flow Back Into The Master Cylinder There For Causing Calipers To Stick. If Yours Isn`t Leaking It Should Be OK. Be Sure To Inspect The Brake Hoses, If They Appear Bad Replace Them. GOOD LUCK

91 STEALTH front caliper sticking after driving for a kinks in the line changed hoses worked great for about 2 days then gradually locks obstruction between master cyl caliper or what?

Typically, sticking calipers are just worn calipers. You may just need to replace them. Calipers often stick when they get older and when they do so the brakes tend to wear rapidly and you'll get some pulling to one side. Always replace calipers on both sides so that both will function equally.

Sticking brake calipers. This can be caused by moisture in the brake fluid which will cause the calipers to rust. Replace the calibers and replace all the brake fluid. It can also be caused by driving with your foot on the brake.
