they look the same. your problem is either an emergency brake thats locked or a bad wheel bearing thats locked up. have you smelled brakes burning? if so,then i would say a brake issue. if not have you heard a squeling sound coming from the rear of car? if so then wheel bearings bad. either way the tire has to come off to look and see which it is.either one of these solutions can be your problem. hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com
with the caliper off the disk assembly -- you can use a big C-clamp to compress the piston in. also if a C-clamp is not around, you can simply loosen the 'zerk' fitting ( the bleeder ) and push the piston hard by hand. ( note: oil will shoot out of bleeder, so put a rag over it to protect your eyes and brake parts ) -- also make sure when you put it all back together that you bleed the brake lines of all air.
1. Raise and support the vehicle.
2. Remove the front wheels with a 19mm tire socket or equivalant.
3. Locate the brake caliper and remove the two retaining bolts from the caliper(they are iether a allen wrench or torx style bolt)
4. Use a prybar and pry gently between the rotoe and caliper to loosen the caliper from its postion then lift it off the bracket.
5. Remove the old pads from the caliper and using a big c clamp or calpiper compression tool and the old inner pad compress the caliper piston back in all the way.
6. Install new pads into caliper and re assemble in reverse order.
Raise the rear of the truck off the ground using jacks. Support the vehicle on both sides with jack stands to prevent it from tipping over. Loosen the lug nuts on the wheels and remove the wheels assembly and set aside, face up, to prevent damage. Disconnect the caliper bolts and remove the brake caliper. Use mechanic's wire to fasten the caliper to your truck's side rail. Take out the outer disc brake pads followed by the inner pads. Compress the brake piston into the caliper bore using a C-clamp. Replace the inner brake pads followed by the outer brake pads. Remove the C-clamp. Remove the mechanic's wire from the caliper. Lay the caliper over the pads, fasten it down and tighten the caliper bolts with the torque wrench to 26 ft. lb. Replace the wheels and lower the vehicle to the ground. Bleed the brakes if necessary and check the brake performance during a short test drive. Good luck and hope this helps.
