Just put on a new set of rotors and pads up front on my 06 Limited. Trouble is the pads seem to be dragging.
I replaced the calipers last year (cheaper than replacing the cracked pistons alone). Removed a set of stillen drilled and slotted rotors as they ate through pads pretty quick and always made an annoying clickety sound.
Meanwhile the new setup seems to be dragging as there's a metallic swishing sort of sound coming from them that goes away when the brake pedal is pressed, while moving of course.
The slipper clips seemed to give me a lot of trouble getting them installed. These are the clips that snap into the channels that carry the ends of the brake pads. Anyone else had trouble with them? Like having them bind up the pad and prevent it from backing off from the rotors?
Well i'd remove the pads and put anti sieze in the slides, remove the caliper pins and check to see if they're dry, lube em up. Make sure the pads move freely throughout the bracket. Also jack up the front of the truck after driving and see if the wheels are dragging, not moving at all. If everything is moving freely then its the pads. Try a different pad material too. If you bought crap, you're going to get crap. IMO, I use OEM pads and never had an issue.
You know there is a proper burnishing procedure so this noise doesn't occur??
