Question about 2001 Ford F250 Super Duty Super Cab
If they are dragging there are 2 possible problems. 1st would be crud built up on the rails that the caliper moves in and out on. Clean road grime, rust, etc. and use brake grease to lube and prevent corrosion to all caliper surfaces that move when the brakes are applied and released. The 2nd possible problem would be corrosion inside the calipers. 2 fixes for that, 1. replace the calipers with new or rebuilt ones, or 2. you can get a kit to rebuild them yourself. If they don't fully release, it is most likely due to corrosion inside, not allowing the piston to completely release. Whatever you do 1, or 2, bleed the system to flush out the old fluid, otherwise you may have the same problem again, as the fluid may be contaminated (fluid absorbs moisture, never add fluid from a container that was left open or not tightly sealed), and corrosion will occur again.
