Dodge Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Did you replace the brake pads? Did you check to make sure the pads float/slide smoothly in the adapter bracket? If you live in the rust belt at all, the adapter will get rusty and swell slightly and cause the pads to bind up. Even if there are chrome pad slides that get replaced with the new pads, often you have to chip off the swollen rust flakes before installing the new slides.
You don't rest your foot on the pedal at all while driving do you? Many people claim they don't but may not realize it, any slight pressure is enough to heat up the pads.
If you take the calipers off ,do the pads slide smoothly on the adapter bracket?
OK, let me know
