Hey how are you

Is there an ABS , Traction control Brake warning light on at this time ?

the calipers can be stuck on and not backing off all the way ?

the ABS system could be causing the ABS to engage prematurely ?

do you have a scanner that can read ford abs system and retrieve fault codes ?

Please let me know

Thank You

No lights on did not know of problem until alignment guy said he could not spin wheels. Yes abs
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

So the ABS warning light is on correct ?

did you scan it and get fault codes ,we need that for our next step ?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
I said no lights on. I have no scanner
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 4 months ago.

With out a scan it wil be a guess , NOW EVEN IF THE LIGHT IS NOT ON NOW, A FORD SCANER OR Equivalent CAN READ PENDING AND HISTORY FAULT CODES

ABS module is a common issue on these truck for failuer , now without that a scan I can not confirm it for you , I will be guessing and you end up throwing parts at it

The Calipers wil lock up the way you describong for,lack of fluid, damage in the pistons, or the ABS module is engaging the brake caliper prematurely ,and that could be for sevral reason, abs sensors, traction sensor , proption abs valve etc..

did this happened suddenly or gradulay after the brake work done ?

Please let me know

Thank You
