Brakes grabbing I own a 2004 Toyota Corolla S and everytime I put the brakes on it feels like it is still staying grabbed. We have replaced the brake pads and rotors. What else do you think might be the problem. It is the front driver side.

How do i adjust the brake pedal on my 2007 Toyota Prius

your rear brakes are shot as they are the tightest
the fronts should grab hard when you press very hard
if they are mushy you need brakes bad
you should fell very comfortable that you have great brakes.
when you press the pedal it should feel strong after 1inch of play
mush means your gonna die or kills someone.
have your brakes bled as a service this will allow them to test them for you at same time . thats the limit you can adjust brakes.

Engine runs fine as it heats up it feels like my brakes are grabbing and smells like brakes are on in gear ,but in neutral its ok.

You need to change your front brake calibers, they are not retracting as they should when you leave off the brakes.Yes get both sides if you dont the other will go shotly after and 2 new one will have better calibration and grab better

Brakes seem to stick.

If you have rear drum brakes then a brake shoe could have come apart causing the wheel to grab and skid on the pavement. If you can see external signs of dark wet areas that would be a leaking brake cylinder which can also cause the brakes to grab. The other possibiity, more common with disc brakes, is that a brake calliper is closing, but is not releasing properly when you let off the brake pedal. This would require replacement of the disc caliper on the wheel where it is grabbing.
Warped rotors can also cause the brake to "grab" when you don't want them to, but generally it will grab and release with a "pulsating' feeling if that's the problem.

Since lift kit install front brakes grabbing 08 titan 2wd

Did your lift kit come with new extended brake lines?
You mentioned the brakes feel like they are "on" and you can't pump up your pedal anymore.That makes me think that like most lift kits,nothing is provided to re-locate the rear rubber brake line that is mounted to the top of the rear differential. It may be stretched so far that it's kinked on both ends allowing fluid to the rear brakes thru hydraulic pressure but not being allowed to release on it's own. Just a thought. Good Luck!

Clunking noise and brakes grabbing

Check your brake hardwares make sure its in proper places and not loose. you would also want to check the caliper sliders, clean and lubricate with silicon lube. and lastly make sure that rotor backplates are not touching the rotors, you can do this by spinning the rotors while the wheel is off, if it is, then pry the backplates a little. hope this would help, goodluck.!
