Re: front lower coil spring mounts

I guess i will pull off that caliper and re check the slide points. I know that i lubbed them well, and again, whole assembly was brand new

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

And does the caliper still stay pressurised after braking?

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

Yes, once I re apply pressure to breaks, it will keep pressure. The caliper compresses easily with nipple open. When i release nipple, it doesn't squirt like it was under pressure.

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

And of course, with wobble from last 2 weeks, a tie rod end, that was replaced 1 years ago, is now worn and will need to be replaced.

Merrrrr!!!

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

Are you sure the brake hose was not twisted during installation? If not, than it seems that for some reason the master cylinder does not open up after braking, to release the brake pressure, or the ABS system keeps pressure on the brake. Was this problem present before changing the brake components?

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

To be honest, i cannot be completely sure. This whole brake thing started 3 years back when i replaced a set of rotors that were warped. The new ones warped in less than a year, thought it was because they were autozone specials. Got new ones and when they went bad in similar time, a mechanic said that i should go with a better grade so updraded to crossdrilled and slotted powerstop. They lasted longer, but they too warped. Figured caliper had to be sticking cause everywhere i read about the ATE calipers being prone and they DID have 188k miles on them. So bought a whole new set of calipers, rotors, and pads. When i installed and bled out the lines i noticed that the one side wasn't releasing pressure.
I would think that I am observant enough to notice if the caliper wasn't releasing before, but now, i am doubting myself.

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

Not sure if it will change anything, but you could try and remove the ABS fuse and see if that makes any difference. But still, if the problem is a blocked valve inside the ABS hydraulic module, you probably will not see any difference.

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

Update......
ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1442369570.252542.jpg
Just a glimpse of the bushing on front control arms. I still need to replace the bushings that are attached to front axle. That would make them the front upper front control arm bushings.

The driver side brake caliper has been swapped out with a replacement from powerstop. It now releases and works properly. No more binding or dragging.

as soon as the front upper front control arm bushings arrive, i will make an appointment with the garage and have them put in along with a new driver side rear axle outer wheel bearing with retainer and seal. I could do myself, but quite frankly, i am tired of spending my entire days off working on Shrek.
I am also going to have mechanic go through entire suspension and steering system and see whats what. Track down odd noises, clunks, etc. Then work out a plan and decide what I will have him do, and what I will do.

The one on the pumpkin is easy, because the ear is strong. The other side is a piece of flimsy hollow metal and you will need to put some piece of metal inside it to not deform it while pressing the bushing out/in. I finally used the head of a big bahco, which was exactly the size. Otherwise you will have to make some U piece of metal which will fit snug inside the ear.

So, quick question.
I am having trouble discerning which bushing to get for the front upper control arm at the front mounts on the axle. It seems like they are the same bushing as the one that is pressed into the rear of the front upper control arm, but I would like to make sure.

Re: front lower coil spring mounts

Yes, all the 4 front upper control arm bushings are the same.
