you should probably swap to the late 99 rotor on the left side as well so you can get rid of the washers. They certainly aren't helping with the stiffness / rigidity of the caliper

I finally got the time to replace all the brakes. The late 99 left front rotor did the trick....fits perfectly without washers.

So my brake pads are actually fine, still have about 50% pad left, so I just reused the pads. I've got all new rotors, calipers and brackets, all for free. I just had to pay for 2 bottles of brake fluid.

From this...


To this...



I love the feel of new brakes. Turns out non of my caliper slide pins were frozen. So the pulling must have been the left rear caliper not working well. Once the left front really got stuck, that's when I realized I had some problems. I'm really glad I was able to replace all 4 calipers and brackets, so hopefully I won't have this problem for a few years. We'll see!
Thanks guys,
Steve

Ha nope! I knew it was coming. I didn't do it because I don't have a dial indicator and I honestly don't even know how. I think this is something that I'm going to do next time when I have more time.

Dial indicator with a magnetic base is very reasonable at Harbor Freight. I have had mine for over 20 yrs now. I use it to "degree" cams too.

Yep, I was waitin'.

After preaching about doing this for years I guess I should spend some time and write up a pictorial for how to index rotors.

With all that trouble with the left caliper, I would surely change the left hose to it, they can deteriorate inside and not let the brake fluid return, acts like a check valve.

HYDROBOOST?

Hi all! I wanted to check and see if this truck has a Hydroboost. It is common in the brake world, that if the pressure is too low, the brakes will overheat. You may also have a booster/master holding pressure in. ALL of the caliper problems you mentioned are related to excessive heat. IF it does not have HYDROBOOST, we can convert it to Hydroboost. Check on that. I also modify the proportioning valve to raise the pressure to the rear brakes.

Second post of really bad info .....

Too low of pressure huh? That's a new one.

How are you modifying the prop valve on these vehicles????!!! For over a decade they have used dynamic proportioning within the ABS software. Hopefully your business has good liability insurance if you are installing a mechanical prop in series with the ABS enabled system.
