hey all. i am just doing my pre may long weekend hub check. i thought as i was driving maybe they where wet or had a lack of grease from spring bogging. simptoms after about 4 or 5 miles jeep would pull left and then pull harder so i got out and felt my hubs they seemed cool felt a wheel lug ouch that is hot. oh ya and when i apply brake pressure it pulls to the other side .so today i pull it all apart and it all looks good and greasy inside hubs(pulled it right down to the last bearing nut all is well when i try to use a c clamp to compress caliper it wouldn't go in oh ya and when i took the tire off i could not spin the hub but once i took the caliper and shoes off it spun free as the day i repacked it last season . so is this my caliper gon bad i am thinking yes but i have never had one go yet so i am not sure . the caliper will not even compress with the bleader all the way open . any thoughts? thanks as alway's in advance! Ryan

It sounds like the piston is freezing in the caliper. Slap a $12.99 rebuilt unit on there and you're on your way! [img]smile.gif[/img]
