Why would the brakes not release from the rotors after changing both on a 1987 Dodge Dakota 2 wheel drive?

i have seen the flex hoses collapse if some one has pinched them off to stop fluid loss during service of calipers if you open the bleeder screws and the brakes release you will need to release the flex hoses




I have an '88 Dakota that had the same problem. I changed the calipers which didn't help, so I checked the master cylinder and found out the piston had seized up. I put a new one on and it worked like a charm.

if there is uneven wear on the rotors, the new pads will take time to wear into the grooves on the rotors. rotors in poor condition will reduce the efficiency of your brakes, and promote wear of the pads, you will end up changing them more often. Most brake shops can turn rotors back to being smooth and true.

Most of the time, you can get by with just replacing the pads. The rotors generally do not need to be turned if there is no pedal pulsation or vibration. Rotors will need to be replaced if the exceed the minimum thickness which is stamped on the web (area with lug holes).
