Brake caliper stuck?
Ok so my rear driver's side caliper was making some screeching. I was forced to drive it a extra day but got the the brake job right away.
I got everything off easy enough, no problem. Swung the caliper up, got the pads off.. inside pad was eaten up pretty well, I think it was starting to eat into the pad backing. Outside pad had a pretty decent amount of meat left on it. I know it has to have a problem if the pad wear is that uneven.
Anyways, I know the rotor is warped, waiting on some OEM ones to arrive.
So, I assembled it back with new pads.
I guess the caliper is stuck? When I was screwing the piston in.. on that wheel only it was ungodly hard to turn. I mean I had to use a 10" breaker bar on it. The dust boot was torn around the piston. I didn't have any problem getting it back together after that so I'm assuming the slide pin is in decent condition.
However after some driving and hearing some rubbing I pulled back in to the awesome burnt pad smell and some caliper smoke. I bled that caliper, I'm still getting that burnt smell but with much less smoke and still rubbing.
I guess what I'm asking, before I go buy a reman caliper, is there anything I have overlooked?
