Question about 1989 Chevrolet Corvette
1989 Corvette Coupe standard suspension. When driven a good distance the right front wheel gets hot while the others stay cool. Is the brake caliper sticking? Why? How do I fix it?
It sounds like a classic "hot brake", your caliper is probably stuck depressed on the rotor. You will probably need to replace the caliper and both front rotors as the one that is getting hot is probably warped. They are replaced in pairs. Get the rotors/caliper and do it yourself. It really is a simple task with minimal tools/mechanical expertise. Get a Hanyes repair manual and it will be a breeze and save you $1K.
