why do my front brakes lock up immediatly??Ive replaced brakes all the way around,,everything except brake hoses on the front.
Does it have ABS brakes? Are you sure that your brakes where bled properly?
I think you already found your problem, when brake hoses fail they cause brake lockups or split and blow fluid all over.
I have already replaced the caliper and rotor on my 2002 Dakota twice and still have a problem (less than 80,000 miles). I had the exact same problem with my 1990 Dakota. It seems to me that it is a quality control problem on the Dakota that Chrysler doesn't care to address.
