Pads on my 82 f250 rub the disk and get HOT. how do i fix this?

The hub got so hot i had to replace the bearings. the pads were rubbing the disk alot so i replaced the dual piston caliper. after a test run or two they still rub and the hub is getting warm. the bearings are working just fine with the caliper off (dont recomend driving to far like that). they dont get warm. with caliper on it begins to generate heat.

Rubbing noise

This will probably be the front C-V shaft or hub bearing. When in 2 wheel drive the C-V shaft will not have a load on it. But as soon as you change to 4 wheel drive the part has stress on it. It can also behave this way when the Hub bearing is asked to bear Torque from the turning C-V shaft. Instead of having slack from the weight of the truck pressing the Hub bearings straight up, the bearings are rotating under Torque and any play is magnified.

The rubbing can be the rotor, running on bad bearings and hitting the brake pads. As the rotor is bolted onto the Hub bearing, the rotor will tilt in harmony to the bad bearings in the Hub. This creates a misalignment as one side of the rotor is tilted creating a high side.

Smokes by pasanger front tire once in a while

sound like one of your caliper is getting stuck or lock. The seal to the piston probably worn out causing the piston in the caliper not to work properly. The piston in the calipers design to move back and forth to release the pressure off the brake disk. when the piston is lock it cause the brake pad and brake disk to rub causing much friction and heat, long period of braking can cause a fire. getting a rebuilt caliper is much easier to replace than have a mechanic rebuilding the old one. you can check if the calipers is lock up by touch and feel the outer hub of the wheel to see if its hot. if its feel hot and smell hot, replace the caliper.

There is a rubbing noise comming from the front left wheel, it is directly proportionate to how fast I'm driving. I pulled the tire and found no evidence of rubbing, could this be a bearing?

could be a hub bearing, but you also should check the axle joint and the brake pads (check small metal tab on one pad that touches the rotor when brakes are ready for service) Hub bearings are very well constructed and most times even when bad, they show no outward signs of failure. Therefore, after checking everything else, it is safe to assume it likely is the bearing. If you need help with removal, just ask.

2006 chrysler pacifica-wheel hubs burning hot

The problem might have already been there,the steel wheels are making it noticeable,because they don`t cool down as quick.Most likely is the calipers sticking,or you have a set of high dollar brake pads on the vehicle,and they are heating the rotors up.The high dollar pads are a very hard composite pad witch produce a lot of friction,and heat as a sort of side affect.

The tire noise will be due to the car needing a wheel alignment, just take it down to your local tyre dealer and they will check it for you if you are not sure.

As for the burning smell, if it's coming from the engine it could be a simple oil leak leaking onto the exhaust or could be more serious like worn rings or valve guides.

Good luck.

do you mean the callipers or the disk? the callipers you should find on the rear of the calliper two bolts should be 1/2 in or 13mm,these bolts are in between the slider bolts for calliper. if they won't go willingly try heating them up with a propane torch be careful not burn the pads or the hose or sensor if you have one once warm try agin with a socket or wrench if no lu goto any car parts store and get some liquid wrench wait til they cool and sprayon wait til next day and they should come out alot easier ...if its the disk use a big hammer or a small sledge don't hit it on where the pads go oron the edge a firm hit close to the hub will doit .. be careful once you have the calliper off make sure you tie it up with some rope or a bungie so you damge the hose godd luck
