2007 Ram 1500 5.7l 4x4 Hemi Laramie non mega cab New front…

Customer Question
2007 Ram 1500 5.7l 4x4...
2007 Ram 1500 5.7l 4x4 Hemi Laramie non mega cab
New front rotors, calipers, pads.....bled system until no air at all for corners in sequence.
Brakes work fine, no pulling or vibrations however there is zero wear on the drivers side rotor.
Fluid flows free through the brake line to the caliper, has been bled multiple times still no wear, passenger side appears to work as it should.
Is it possible to still have air in that one caliper or the new caliper is faulty? Could the short section of rubber hose going to the caliper have an internal collapse?
Any suggestions?

HI,

Ok, first thing, look at the caliper and tell me position of the bleeder screw - above or below the brake hose to caliper connection

HI,

Ok, good.

You need to remove the wheel(if not off already), and have someone press the brake pedal down while you watch the caliper.

If the piston does not extend, then you have a collapsed hose.

If it does, then observe the caliper slides to see if the caliper travels on them. If not, then remove, use emory cloth on them, lube with brake lube and reinstall.

If they do, then remove the caliper and manually try to move the pads to see if they are sticking. If they are, they may bee a poor cut on them causing too tight a fit and not allowing them to move along the caliper rail. Use a dremel or grinder to remove a little material until the slide freely and do not hang up

Most of the time it is either the caliper pins or the pads hanging up and not moving freely
