I have a 80 CJ-5, After driving it around for a while I noticed something smelled hot. I didn't know what it was but when I got home I discovered that the left front brake was rubbing and was what smelled hot, and that with the jeep jacked up I couldn't hardly turn the left front wheel. I took the brake pads off but they appeared to be in good shape, the caliper seemed to be what was causing the rubbing so I replaced the caliper but something is still causing the brake pads to rub. And the wheel is still hard to turn.
Could the caliper have caused the brake pads to rub and become uneven? Should I replace the brake pads also? What else could be the cause of the rubbing and making the wheel hard to turn? Any help would be much appreciated.
