My Tercels wheels locked up. I don't realy think it has any thing to do with the brakes, because when i was using a wench to drag it onto a car dolly the wheels would roll. The transmission shifts the wheels just wont turn in any direction. Please send me all the possibiltys and i will try to trobleshoot thru thouse.

ok, think about mass that moves under the forces of braking, things like engines and gearboxes, have you checked all those mounts for integrity, have a look to see if anything has been rubbing, new shiney spots appearing that weren't there before.
jack up frt end. remove wheels. take note of how the brakes go together. do 1 side at a time so you can use the other side as a referance. remove caliper bolts. use a c-clamp to push in caliper pistons. remove old pads. than remove caliper bracket and rotors.dont be afraid its not a big deal. make sure to check brake fluid level and pump the pedal when the job is completed.
As this is a front wheel drive car it may screw up your front drive joints,but your torque converter is just a giant fluid pump and things like driving with two feet or power braking could damage it but wouldn't think what you descibe could screw up your torque converter,Other things in your trans maybe ,but not that.Well just my 2 cents worth.
You are not harming anything with the transmission or the brakes when you are turning the wheel from lock to lock.Unless you sit there and do this for hours at a time you are not hurting anything.People don`t usually drive this way anyway.It`s not that often that you are going lock to lock while driving.Unless you are in a parking lot or making slow sharp turns.Hope this helps.Good luck.
you may need a wheel alingment, your front brake disks may need a machine, your wheels could be out of ballance or buckled etc.. unfortunately these are not realy diy things so a mechanic will be needed
