1999 2wd tahoe 5.7L
Front right Brake is not releasing
Installed New Caliper & Rubber line
Installed New Wheel Bearings
Flushed all the oil Brake fluid W/new DOT4
Pulled ABS Fuse "just to make sure" but it still did the same thing..

If I Break the bleeder and then drive it will start dragging after about 10 mins of driving..I am @ a lost...any help would be great!

i would like to know also.....my 96 burban is dragging the passenger caliper.

-replaced the passenger caliper and that side is still dragging to the point that it melted the abs sensor from heat.

The caliper will not release the rotor fully so the truck pulls to the passenger side, brakes do no shudder when applied. Jack the truck up and the wheel is hard to rotate. When bleeding that side, only a small amount comes out; but I did get all the air out.

just did a bunch of searching and many people mentioned that OBS trucks have a problem with the rubber brake hoses swelling shut; causing pressure to remain on the caliper which sounds similar to my problem.


for $16 i'm gonna try to swap the hose before the interested buyer comes to look at it.
