I seek help from the great minds of this group.
My driver side front brake and wheel is getting smoking hot
I have a 93 Chevy 2 wheel drive that needed brake stuff all around.
Everything was just worn out and the MC was seeping a slight bit of fluid.
so I put the following on new:
All was good after the repair except as soon as you applied the brake the
steering wheel would turn to the right. It didn't do this with the old
parts. I thought perhaps the caliper pistons were warped so I then replaced
Now I've noticed that the driver front wheel is getting so hot that the
grease melted out of the upper ball joint. And wheel bearing grease pops
from under the bearing cover. If you spit on the wheel after a lot of
braking, your spit will boil. The other side is the usual warm - not near
I popped of the rotor again and checked the bearings. Both looked good so
repacked and put it back together. I just drove a very long drive w/o
pressing the break and everything stayed cool. Then I went for a short drive
with heavy breaking and the damn thing is about to have a nuclear meltdown.
Has anyone seen this problem before? I have got to get this fixed!!!!
