One of my biggest pet peeves about this forum is that hardly anyone ever goes back and finishes their threads with solutions etc. Drives me nuts!!

Anyways, found the culprit. It was my passenger side caliper seizing when it got over heated.

I pulled the caliper off and proceeded to pump the brakes. Only one piston came out - nothing unusual without an even load on them. I pushed the piston back in and blocked that piston with a socket wrench and went and pumped the brakes again. 2nd piston came up -again, nothing unusual. BUT, when I went to push the piston back into the caliper it wouldnt budge. I cranked on the clamp and never got it to move. That was enough to justify my hypothesis. Yanked the caliper off.....purchased new one....installed.....bled brakes.......and NO issues/ sounds/ vibrations now since Saturday morning.
