05 Chevy Silverado 1500 braking problem

Asked by Jul 28, 2015 at 10:03 AM about the 2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext Cab 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

So I took my truck to a shop i trusted to get a diagnosis - they said my drivers side
caliper was hanging up. I then got all the parts i needed from advance auto. 2 reman.
calipers, 2 rotors and wagner brake pads. (the rear brakes are drums and were not
touched)  everything went smoothly taking the parts off and putting on all the new
parts.
i checked over the new calipers as well to make sure everything was good before
putting them on. now my problem is... I drove 30 miles after installing said parts, and
can hear a rubbing noise. at lower speeds 0-50 mph. and when i got home i threw
some water on each rim/rotor...  passenger side no real problem. driver side - rotor was
Hot enough to sound like i was putting a hamburger on the grill.... which i do not
understand why.. or if this is normal??? the pins on the calipers had grease on them
and the caliper overall, seemed to move very freely and nice when i installed them. i
put anti-seize on the new brackets so the new pads wouldnt get "hung" up but i fear
they may still be getting stuck for some reason??

You might need a new brake hose on that side as they fail internally a lot of times. I'd replace both sides and re-bleed.

The front brake hoses are collapsing. Replace brake hoses.

if the truck stops perfectly now, and the hoses look to be in good shape, how would they fail? and cause the rubbing noise/ hot rotors?

That is the thing about brake hoses they collapse on the inside with no physical damage to the outside and it can be a sometimes thing. Trust me just change the brake hoses and your problem will be taken care of. Do this test when the brakes get hot remove tire the rotor will not be able to turn it will be like it is seized up open bleeder screw and if rotor spins freely replace brake hoses.

There is a bad batch of driver side reman chevy truck calipers. My was both Cardone and Nugeon. Buy Duralst reman, try that. I went thru 5 calipers. Now on 6th hope it is good (duralast). Tim from Mayfield Ohio
