You're lacking some info about this issue. Who replaced the brake pads? It sounds like they may have been incorrectly installed. Another thing... You say "brake pads" but say nothing about the brake shoes. This leads me to believe that the front pads were changed and the rear brake shoes were not. If you do not know how to change them yourself, go to a reputable place to get them checked. Be specific about your problem and have them check the front rotors and brake pads and the rear brake shoes and the drums. It is quite possible that the rear drums need to be replaced or turned. Drums and rotors are fairly inexpensive so I would consider replacing them BOTH. With a little more info, I'm sure someone here could help more Good luck!

Hello their, you have answered your question 100%, if you can rebuild the calipers it would save you money instead of getting new/rebuilt ones, and just bleed them normally, then apply to fixya to become one of us :)

what you need to do is peel back the dust boot and apply a small amount of silicone spray to lubricate the boot. the boot should not spin. you could damage it. this is also the reason why the piston is spinning back when you let go. good luck.

Brake pedal pulsing


Its a combination of worped rotors and uneven braeke pad ware The whole system needs to spin vary true if you get over heating at the rotors they worp or if the last time the pads were replaced the rotors worn' t turned or replaced then the pads could not ware evenly and would over heat the rotors and they would no longer spin true . Watch out on ice or slippery condutions they tend to lock up and through you out control at the slightest touch of the brakes

The sound you hear is most likely the brake pad wear, not the caliper. When pads start to wear down, they will start to make grinding noise,and not necessarly all the time. As the pad wears down more, then the grinding will be hear consistently.
It could also be a worn hub bearing. Jack up the vehicle and spin the tire and see if you can recreate this noise. Use jack stands to support the vehicle.

Heat coming from1997 geo tracker & front tires


sounds like you have a brake claiper piston not return causing the brake pads to drag, jack up both wheels and spin to see if you can feel or hear drag, give the wheel a hard spin and see if it stops right away or seems to spin freely, could be the drag of the pads on the rotor, or wheel bearings need repack or even as much as brake residual fluid pressure on calipers cuased by improper brake mc pushrod adjustment, if you have had any recent brake work like a MC replacement it could be that it was not properly adjusted as far as pedal free play... check those.. please let me know if this helps, rate my help...thanks

Cant compress piston on rear brake calipers


Use a caliper wind back tool which rotates the piston at the same time as pushing it back. Release the bleed screw to assist the wind back. If you use a brake hose clamp on the brake hose this will reduce the need to bleed the system.

Press the brake then my rear tires brakes keep locking


it just happenned to me with my ford f-150 1997, turned out to be the rubber hose that was clogged so it couldn't relieve the pressure in the lines....

it should be located on top on the differential if you don't have disc brakes on the back.... but if it is disc brakes you should have a rubber hose on each side....
