Caliper issue

Hey fellas let me start by introducing myself, My name is Matt this is my first post on this sight. I currently own a 12 wk2 srt. I previously owned a 06. What I've got is what I think is a caliper hanging up. After coming to a stop, while accelerating it sounds like there is a caliper not releasing after about 30ft the noise stops. If driven it for about a 2o mile trip and checked the wheel temp to see if anyone is a lot hotter then another but they all seem the same. So I'm thinking if there is a hang up its only after stopping then as I get going it releases. I know e brakes are to different specs on the 12 but on the 06 I had a similar noise and changed pads and it was resolved. Let me know what you guys think. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!

Re: Caliper issue

warranty left? Could be a broken pad? sticky calipers(rear calipers are the same as the 06-10 except for the bolt pattern)

Re: Caliper issue

No warranty. Going to take it apart this week and have a look. Could need pads I guess I'll find out. I've done some searching and see the rotor options are scarce. Might just have the rotor turned and throw some new pads on. BTW you jeep is sick.

Re: Caliper issue

you can get a complete rebuilt caliper for about $100 with all hardware if it that.
