Replacing 1 caliper on its own can cause all sorts of uneven braking issues, as well as using old/new pads.

Replace both calipers, replace pads, and be done with it.

the rotors are new-ish, only had 1 set of pads run on them...

Of course I bought a set of pads (4)...I have to use one of the old pads because the caliper is too tight on the new set, clamping the rotor...

here's what I did. I had the gal at O'Riellys turn down the rotors .020". She felt so bad for me she did it for free!

Yes, I opened the calipers all the way, and I that the verified the rotors and pads were the right ones.


Passenger side, everything was "snug, but I could turn the whell by hand easily enough...

Driver side, wasn't happening...so I stuck 1 old pad and 1 new pad on it...

It's drivable at least...when the pads wear down a little I'll put the other new pad on...it's ghetto, I know, but $$'s tight and I can't afford new calipers now.

I've been bitching to my Bride about making an emergency fund, she keeps saying, "don't worry, God will provide"...and spends us down to nothing...

Everytime we discuss it we have a fight...even went to our counseler about it...no luck there either.

I try to remind her He helps those that help themselves....

Man, the last time I felt like this I jumped on the hawg and came home 15 months later...good thing I don't have a bike now....I wouldn't come home this time...

Just looking thrue the forum's and figured i'd leave some "motivation" also. Although mine's a 97 the same principal is there

I vote solid axle sir maybe a 14bolt sf rear and a dana 44hp with some 37's. However it's your truck, just feeding ideas here.
