I've never heard of the Teves calipers sticking tho. I know the way they were designed could cause premature rotor warpage. Thats why sooo many early WJ's had brake problems. The Akebono's took car of the warpage.
I hope that the Akenbono's does fix your issue. And you're right...I'm sure the tranny aren't too good of friends with those calipers right now. LOLOLOL!
Yeah, I knew the Teves callipers warped the rotors (due to uneven pressure being applied) but didn't know there were so many problems with them sticking either.
I'm just praying this overhaul will fix my problem...

I would do all four calipers if I was you. As far as I recall, you can leave the Teves calipers on the rear without any probs, it was just the front ones that cause uneven wear hence warping. That way you know all your brakes are done and dusted and you won't need to worry about them at all.
Damn 9.4mpg?! Bet BP are rubbing their hands!
Good to know you've got it sorted out though and on the road to ending the problem and at a good deal too.
Well, I thought it over and just decided to go for the whole shebang. Two new Akebono callipers with Mopar rotors and pads up front and two new callipers and Mopar pads at the back. Total cost £540.
Yeah, I'm BP's best customer - still don't get a free coffee though!
Thank goodness I can't drive any further than my work which is to 9 miles a day! Downgraded to regular too, I feel bad for my baby but the cost of Ultimate is outrageous now and she only asks for '91 so regular is still like a fine wine to her.
