Front brakes seem to be draging?

Im not too sure but i had just done the front brakes on my 88 prelude with 4WS and they seem to be stuck. now i don't know if it is the caliper or if i should just bleed the lines so that it work like it should any suggestions??

    Well, I seem to be experiencing the same thing with my 88 Prelude. I know that I need pads, possible rotors now too, but the caliper on the driver's side sticks. Have you had your problem resolved yet? I'm wondering if it is a cylinder problem. I'm terrified to take it to a brake place because they'll probably want to charge for rotors, shoes, calipers and then tell my my cylinder is screwed too.

    What's strange is that the caliper seems to stick at times, then not at others. If I hit a bump, it will stick without any application of the brakes, then if I hit another bump, it will release itself...leading me to suspect a cylinder issue.

    Anyway, I was told by a mechanic that the calipers come complete, preloaded for the prelude. Do you know if that is true? If you have fixed your drag problem can you tell me what it was?

I just did all 4 brakes and have drag at the left rear. When I re-assembled it, the bracket that holds the caliper was frozen. It's supposed to be able to slide in and out. I guess that's my problem, but I can't find anyone to sell me a new bracket...they want me to buy the whole caliper.

How do i disconnect the 4ws

Compare your rear knuckles to a non 4WS. You have to remove the steering extension shaft leading back there as well as the rear tie rods. The rear knuckles have to be locked so they don't steer. Might need to swap some of the components from a junkyard 88 89 90 91 Prelude.

Loud noise sometimes ocurs when excelerating or braking. sounds like metal draging , but it is not.

Is the car stick shift or auto. Sound like a problem with either the transmission which is spinning all the time even when sat still. Or the Rear axel is tuffed out..

1994 Pick up. Came into the shop needing brakes

Yes it could be your wheel bearings but it also could be the pins that hold your brake pads in. The pins need to be well lubercated to allow the pads to move freely on them. the wheel bearing might be miss adjusted or have some thing in them causing the noise. i would first check the caliper make sure the pads are not draging on the rotor at all. make sure the pads do not have rocks or dirt stuck in them. The problem is most likely to be with your brakes or even your dust cover for your front rotors. make sure the dust cover is not bent where it is touching the rotors.
