Never trust loaded calipers.



I learned that long ago.

You can't hang if your nuts haven't dropped...it's physics

I will try that out, and reply back, thanks mate.

Shot in the dark, really.

Without the car in my stall I'm just reaching here.

How tight were the pads when you put the caliper/pads over the rotor.  Did they slide on easily?  I'm wondering if the caliper is not centered over the rotor and one side is pressed against the rotor.

My Jeep Cherokee had hot back brakes. The new Chinese drums were out of round causing them to be hot to the touch


Throw on some Weber sidedrafts, Rising Sun hood.... call it good

I fixed it.

 

I took off the calipers to inspect the sliders, etc.. then c clamped the two pistons in, power bled the caliper.. Did both sides, then did the master again. It's fine now, still a bit of resistance, I think the pads might be a bit on the large side, but it coasts now!

here's my setup if anyone is interested.

I ran all new bushings everywhere, decided I wanted to cap off the bumpstops with some dimple died plate.

Picture of the pass side brake and control arms Mike made me. I had to get the hub turned down to clear my wheels.

I haven't painted anything yet, don't really plan on it. I barely drive it.

Here's the 620. 21,000 original miles, very little rust. Second owner, bought locally. I have all the dealer paperwork and all.
