Got on highway last week car started shimming got home front wheel was burning hot replaced front caliber drove 120 miles fine now today have same promblem

You might want to have a mechanic take a look at your
master cylinder, especially if you replaced the brake caliper on the hot wheel. If you didn't replace the brake caliper on the hot wheel, you should do that first. They do go bad from time to time. They can get stuck in the on-braking position and drag and cause all that heat to build up. Shimmy was probably caused by a heat warped rotor.

On hot days my 2003 GMC Sierra 1500HD gets a front end shimmy and the front brakes are overheating as they seem to be applying themselves. Any thoughts?

calipers sticking ,,, brakes shake because the rotors warp from the heat, also check your wheel bearings as they are problematic in these gm trucks ,, price of wheel bearings are way cheaper online rather than any parts store

I have the lower control arm rubbing on the backside of the brake rotor on driver side of 1995 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab PU 5.7L V-8

Sounds to me Like your lower Ball Joint is wore out causing the steering knucle to move inwords towards the lower control arm and rub on rotor. I would be checking that out.

Wheel bearing out on steering axle, 1500 ext cab silverado '03 What do I have to remove or detach to get to the inside bearing?

I'm almost positive that you will find the inner bearing in the back of the brake rotor behind an oil seal. replace the oil seal when you do the bearing. Remove the brake caliper and the center axle nut and the rotor will literally fall off. Hope this helps.

Hot front wheels

Replace brake hoses,they have an inner core that has ruptured and the outside rubber core is keeping pressure on the caliper with you foot off the brake. This will fix it! A common problem for this vehicle.

ABS braking

have you check? the master cylinder. sometine when you get the rotors cut they dont come out right because they may be warped or to thin. if you did the job yourself you might have put the calipers in on the wrong side. this happens alot . if your rotors front and rear are fine then switch the calipers to the other side.
