Front brakes lock up

Asked by Aug 23, 2015 at 09:03 AM about the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Crew Cab SB

Question type: General

adjust the front brakes began to move the vehicle does not leave, I made full service
brake and road While some 30-50 miles and do the same thing again, only in front
brakes, disconnect the ABS pump to see if it does the same problem, and as usual,
loosen the brakes after driving several miles but set back when you least expect, I read
about this problem and seems typical in Silverado, some have even set fire to this
situation, drain all the fluid lines goes well, the ABS pump or module is expensive to buy
and not the problem, if the problem is that sometimes it slows well but most of the time
wearing tight brakes,

Well, if you are able to release the breaks without prying on the calipers, Still don't rule them out. Another cause is the front break hoses, the rubber hose that attaches to the caliper.

I have my suburban that is 2004 and one time I replace all of my brakes and 2 days later the car felt heavy like I was pulling a big boat on a trailer :-( I found that my drivers wheel was locking up and I try first to open the caliper and it was hard like a rock and then I loose the bleeder screw and the caliper was perfect and easy to open completely. End up been the caliper hose that was swollen internally .
