Right front brake keeps freezing up - I've replaced pads & caliper & had rotors turned. Any suggestions?

Replace the brake hose. Could be a proportioning valve also(close to the brake master cylinder). I replace all the hose. One is bad the rest are close behind.

Right rear brakes keeps messing up on a 1998 Chrysler Cirrus, we keep buying new right rear brakes about every two months or less. Can you help us out?

You have to make sure the brake system is operating properly.Change both rear brakes it sounds like the left rear brake side is not working making the right side wear out so quick.After changing the back brakes bleed them making sure you have no air in your brake lines.start bleeding them from the left rear to the right rear to the left front to right front to master cylinder.

S-10 chevy blazer/front brakes freezing up

make sure that the calliper body is free to move on the support pins
the pins are there to allow the calliper to centralize on the rotor
if the pins are seed up then when pressure is applied to the piston the calliper is pulled sideways but then keeps that pad in hard contact with the rotor
as there is no check valve in the master cylinder for disk brakes, there may be a problem in the compensating port for the disc section that is keeping the disc brake section on

Right front brake caliper freezes up on occassion

You either need to rebuild it correctly, or replace it - which is the most common thing to do. Since you probably have crud in it, you may have the other side crud up as well, so the best thing to do would be to change both. -or redo both brakes on the front end. Hope this helps, Rick
