Make sure you check that its not rubbing. The silverado's have a sort of strange brake setup where the brakes just ride on the rotor. If the channel isn't clean that the pads ride on then they will push on the rotor hard. Unfortunately that is the only reason your wheel could get hot. Even if the bearings in your rear were going bad your axle would get hot but not your wheel. Thanks.

My rear brakes are getting way too hot on my 2000 Chevy Silverado. What could be causing this? I just replaced the brake pads and rotors. The back brakes seem to be seizing up and I can't figure out why.


This year of truck did have issues with rear disc brakes. Quality of pads is extremely critical. Go with the AC Delco pads and rotors to eleviate some of the issue. Make sure that the slide pins are liberally lubricated and move freely or drag will cause excessive heat to occur. Let me know if you need anything else.

Chevy steering wheel controls


You first have to disarm and remove the air bag (unscrews with bolts from behind the steering wheel) and then you will see the screws for the switches. Only the silverado awitches will work.

Rear brakes replacement


The Rotors would have to be Grooved Beyond Resurfacing to Change them. Check and see if they have very deep Grooves. If Not you just need pads. Some Places will do this for 75.00 and others will Charge upwards of 200 to 400 Bucks for Service. Just do some Calling and Check out Prices first.
