Question about 1990 Mitsubishi Minivan
On older vehicles rust can be a major factor in how your brakes work. You probably have a problem with the calipers not floating properly because the brake pads are jammed in place by rust. You will probably need to purchase new brake pads, discs and possibly new brake sliders . Take the calipers off , knock out the brake pads, and carefully take of the shiny brake sliders. The rust is under the sliders. Two bolts hold the caliper mount on , it will be easier to work on if you remove it from the vehicle. Take a file and clean the rust off the iron caliper mount till there is only metal. Coat the filed surfaces on the caliper mount with anti seize and put the sliders and the pads back on. Make sure the new pads float properly (not jammed like before) and reassemble. I have had several old Mitsubishi's with rust on the caliper mount that did the same thing. Wear a mask, it is a dirty job but filing off the rust should fix the problem.
