Strip them out again clean the claibers so the new pads slide freely grees with copper grees the pins and stick a spot on the back of the brake pads that sit on the brake pistons,,,not the disk!!! and check the brake pistons are free to move,,you should be able to just push the brake pistons back into the cylinders with your thum only,,,

Grinding and rubbin when breaking, seems to be getting worse. Only happens when breaking.


Get your brake pads replaced. Sounds like the brake linings have worn down to nothing, and you are now metal to metal on your brakes.

Rear disc brake problem


Sounds like the pistons are sticking in the calipers. Also check the brake hoses, I had a collapsed one that was making the caliper not release.

The caliper pistons can be sticking. By flushing out the brake fluid on both rear calipers may correct your problem if contamination is removed by bleeding the rear calipers

Brakes sticking in rear just changed pads and roters 2000 jimmy


You need to make sure the caliper pieces slide freely on the pins and the piston also moves freely. I just did my daughters GM car. I had to pull back the rubber boots, thoroughly clean the pins and relubricate them with the correct lubricant. Worst case scenario, you may have to replace the caliper pins or get rebuilt calipers.

1994 Jimmy - Rear brakes are dominating after brake job


You need to bleed the whole system. Once this is done it should work better. Make sure you are not low on brake fluid. If the front brakes are disk brakes and the rear are drum breaks, the front really does most of the stopping, the back jjust keeps the car from spinning or swaying. But the main stopping power is in the front breaks. They need to be bled correctly, make sure brake fluid is up and make sure emergency break is not engaged. The emergency break uses a lever and cable to activate the rear brakes. The emergency breaks don't run off brake fluid...

please give good ratings, they are very important...

Rear brakes dragging on GMC 2000 after changing pads.

check the axle end play. if there is significant axle in-out motion, this will cause excessive inside pad wear. it will also cause the caliper to bind under breaking conditions, yet slide freely when there is no stress applied
