I have a '99 Durango 2WD, (ABS-rear only) that didn't need a brake job
until almost 90K miles when the front brakes started dragging. I have
replaced pads, calipers & hoses, but they still drag, not as bad, but
some. Where else can I look? No problems with the rear (shoes only
replaced back there), only the front rotors heat up.
Guess you will need another brake job before the next 90k :-)
Are you Positive that the brake hoses to the calipers were replaced?
or did someone tell you that they were replaced?
If they really were replaced, are they kinked at all?
you either have a kinked brake line somewhere, or dirt in the brake system-J

Brakes last if you're easy on 'em ;-).
Actually, I replaced everything myself; it's all new and nothing is
However, I like your comment about dirt -- re-checking things today I
noticed quite a bit of crud in the bottom of the master cylinder
reservoir. I'm going to flush the system and refill.
