Question about 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
What causes the break calipers to stick on a 2002 silverado?
Posted on Nov 22, 2012
O k,go ahead and change the caliper hoses.The way that works is,when you step on the brake,you produce 1000`````s of pounds of pressure to the brake pad.Witch pushes(or forces in this case)the brake fluid threw the caliper hoses.But when you release the brake pedal the caliper hoses collapse blocking brake fluid pressure to remain on the caliper tight.This is the cause of the sticking caliper,and spongy brake pedal,If I can help,email@example.com

Replace both front brake hoses.....they collapse on the inside and will not allow fluid to retract...caliper was probobly fine.....this happens a lot....good luck...Lee
