Question about 2004 Ford Expedition
If you machined or replaced the rotors and IF, you used the best grade vehicle specific pads,eg. Raybestos or Wagner,the only thing left was to completely sand off all rust on the hub that the rotor mounts on and all pad sliding surfaces and I use anti-seize compound on all bare metal and sliding surfaces. If you put it together dry ,the pads will drag and rust will accumulate and really causes issues.
Next,as was stated,always flush the fluid every two years. That alone will not cause the grabbing
If the calipers are rusted inside and the piston is not fee to retract you will have issues.
The grabbing is a result of pad quality and the ability for the pads to retract. Thus the rotors have to run true and the pads/calipers have to be lubed. Also use synthetic brake lube inside on the caliper side pins. (Permatex Caliper Lube)
