Question about 1998 Ford Explorer
I have a 1998 Ford Explorer Sport. After changing out my front driver side brake disc, I am having a problem with my brake caliper. I think one of the pistons does not extract when braking. Could I have damaged something when I depressed the pistons to install the caliper? I didn't depress the pistons similtaneously with a C-clamp. I depressed them one at a time rather quickly. I changed the whole brake caliper out bled the line and I'm still encountering a problem. The brake pedal kicks back and runs when braking at low speed coming to a stop. I don't detect a problem braking at high speed, only when coming to a stop.
These rotors are known for rusting onto the vehicle. when you removed them you probably had to beat them off with a hammer. if this is the case then you may have a small amount of surface corrosion on the hub. this could cause your rotor to not sit evenly and cause a wobble. recommend removing the new rotor and cleaning the surface of the hub
