Question about 2003 Ford F250 Super Duty Crew Cab

1 Answer

Uneven wear on new brake pads

I replaced the front disk pads on my 2003 Ford F-250 super duty and had the rotors turned. After two weeks I heard grinding. I took them apart again and the new pads are wearing on the ends. The entire pad is not contacting the rotor. Do I need to replace the clips that spread the pads apart when pressure isn't being applied to the brake pedal? Or is there another problem you can think of?

Could be bad or sticking hubs, wheel bearings or u joints. When you said it went away when 4wd engages tells me that your right its partially engaged. Had the same issue with my 95 SUV 2yrs ago and had to replace the locking hub assembly. It had the electronic auto hubs. They were shot and starting to fall apart.

Where can I get a step by step instructions on replacing the front rotors, calipers, and pads on my 3004 250 superduty diesel 4x4?

copy and paste link (highlight the web address then press ctrl and c at the same time then click the address bar and hit ctrl and v at the same time)

This will tell you how to replace the wheel bearings but just stop short of the wheel bearing step. Good Luck!

Brake problem

it sounds like your disk brakes are the problem. two ways to fix the problem. champfer your brake pads or basically glue your pad to the caliper piston with some stuff called disk brake quiet. the shop probably does not want to take your whole front brake system apart again. good luck.

Front brake rotor

hi from uk i assume the rotor/disc is scoured due to brake pads worne out ? here in uk it is not the practice to machine down/clean up discs because what you take off disc you forfeat the life of pads and you run possibility of the caliper piston nearing its travel if pads wear too low again and run risk of fluid leak/s also the thinner disc will heat up quicker resulting in brakes imbalance ? for your safety and others? renew both discs and pads have seen machined discs crack and literally plane away the new pads prematurely do the right thing?

In my oppinion Factory pads are far better than most aftermarket pads. You can rule out the rotors by taking them down to a mechanic that has a lave. once they start turning the rotors they will be able to tell if the rotors are warped. If your rotor thickness is under the factory minimum they could have become warped over time, which would explain why the problem got worse over time. In that case you need to purchase new rotors and have them machined. Just make sure you replace the old pads with new ones.
