hey everyone..


I have a 1998 dodge ram 4x4 quad cab 5.2l .. I was have a issue with my front brake calipers sticking...I replace the rotors brakes and calipers the other day.
I bleed the system and everything and my driver side front caliper and sometimes the passenger side still stick especially the driver side I cant even drive it cause the wheel gets so hot I have bleed it several times and end with the same results... I am stumped I could really use some much needed help friends... thank u in advance!!

You're gonna want to change out your master cylinder. It's not releasing the pressure and causing the drag. You're also gonna want to ask your question here to get a better response.

Welcome to the "Z"!!! and to further reiterate on what Roger is on with the master cylinder. It could be that, then again it could be as simple as the front brake hoses. This same thing happened to my 02 1500 about a year ago and it was the rubber hoses that go from the frame to the caliper that were collapsing internally. Also happened to a 94 GMC 1500 that I traded for a 98 quad cab Ram 1500. The Ram never gave me the issue with just over 240k on the clock when I got rid of it.

It is not your master cylinder it is your rubber brake line . the are collapsing on the inside. I had a 1998 Dakota and the rubber on the inside would collapse and keep it from letting go. so do that first before you replace master.
