brakes..broke

when i hit the brakes the jeep pulls right. so i replaced both front calipers and pads but it still pulls. i know it is def. the front right b/c on gravel or wet roads, that one locks up. i have bled and re-bled that line, but no good. the only thing i can figure is that the replacement was bad too and need replaced. any other suggestions? could rotten rubber brake lines do this?

thanks all,
shawn

Re: brakes..broke

A bad rubber brake hose could possibly produce the symptoms you mentioned. However, the one thing that is jumping to mind is a possible warped rotor. Might be something to look into.

Re: brakes..broke

Already replaced the rotors and if it was the a warped rotor the pedal would probably have a shimmy to it

Re: brakes..broke

You might have a collapse brake hose or bad brake proportion valve.

Re: brakes..broke

is there any way to trouble shoot that besides just replacing them?

Re: brakes..broke

aligned? what's that? to answer your question...not since i bought it a year and a half ago. how would alignment cause that brake to lock up?

Re: brakes..broke

Maybe your left brake isn't working very well? In a stock brake system on gravel the front brakes should lock up before the rears, because when you brake hard on pavement your jeep's weight will shift forward and the front brakes will do most of the work, and you don't want your rear brakes locking up on you. So don't ignore the left side; your right brake may be working perfectly.

Re: brakes..broke

i am thinking along the lines of 55cj5. sounds to me like your right is working and your left is on a holiday. when you get on the binders and it pulls to the right, does it continue to pull after you let off? if not, then your right is working and your left side is resting. if it continues to pull after you release the pedal, then the right side is sticking. did it get this way all of a sudden, or has it been gradually getting worse, or did it just come out from a long winters nap?
