1999 GMC Yukon SLT 5.8 with 207,000 miles..
So like the title says, my truck jerk hard right when I apply the brakes with any amount of force or a quick stop. She has new pads on her, so that's not the problem. Anyone have any ideas why this may be happening?

Thanks...

Sticky caliper? Got drums in the rear that might need adjusting?

Ok, so how do I go about fixing that? Do I need to go to get a new one, or find one in a junk yard? Or is there a way to un-freeze mine?

New caliper from Rock Auto. Replace, bleed, go.

lol i would probably inspect it before ordering a caliper. Make sure pistons retract properly, and sliders are seized. Also check that the brake line bracket hasnt swollen closed. It will create alot of different issues.

Better have new loaded caliper on hand. Just in case.

Theyre not $$$$$$$$. Pretty simple jerb to swap. Except the bleeding part.

I'd also suggest doing both fronts while your at it.
