: Ok, I've noticed for a while that I am getting excessive brake dust,
: squeeking and scrapping noises from my front brakes.
: I believe that calipers are not going back out when I release the brakes,
: and they are staying closed on the rotor. And that's where I'm getting the
: noises and excessive brake dust.
: Any suggestions??
: Do I need to rebuild my front Calipers?? Or is it the Sliders?
: Any help would be great!!

I doubt you need a rebuild on a 2000 model. (Doubt, but not going to rule
Tell us a little more about the rotors and the pads. You can't possibly be
using stock rotors and pads. My guess is you probably just have pads with a
bit more organic material in them than you are used to. The squeal is
normal if you haven't put anti-squeal gel (or anti-squeal pads) on the BACK
of the brake pad. (If I ever see someone put that silicone based
anti-squeal spray on their pads and rotor....I will be forced to kick you in
Anyhoo, more information needed on the materials of your rotors and pads.
Do you FEEL a friction point on the rotors while driving? Does the vehicle
pull to one side or the other when initially braking?
