Re: Is it my callipers or something else??

Well Marty,

What it sounds like to me, is that the calipers are sticking. My dad's Ram did the same thing on the right front, and the dealer replaced the caliper, rotor, and pads, cause it was still under warranty.

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!

True your brakes would be knackered by the time you got here.

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.

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...

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.

Ouch 540! Still at least it'll be done and at 9.4mpg you must be spending that a month on gas, so you're gonna recoup the cost.

No free coffee?! Outrageous! Have a word with the manager dude

Re: Is it my callipers or something else??

My dad had this problem with his f150. It was just that the pins needed greased. Every so often you'd have to get under it and lube those pins or they would try to seize.

Re: Is it my callipers or something else??

Yeah, I think the first shop that changed the rotors and pads a year ago never lubed the pins so I imagine they're now beyond just greasing...

However, my parts have arrived today! I love coming home from work to a heavy parcel crying out to be opened...


Akebono upgraded callipers for the front


Brand new rear callipers at the back


Not pictured; front rotors, rear pads and other rear calliper.

Finish on the paint isn't bad and being brand new they'll be super easy to paint when fitted. Just got to get it booked in now... at a different shop.
