I have a '90 Legacy SW, all-wheel drive. I recently changed both rear struts. The car has 190,000. Today, after driving about 20 miles,when I stopped at a light, I smelled hot brake pads. When I got home, the odor was coming from the rear. I touched the wheels on both rear sides, and they were HOT. The fronts were cool. Would you suspect that maybe the flex lines were moved too much during the strut change that they may be causing partial binding? Thanks for any advice, before I have to start component by component. I saw several related posts. Last spring I had the tranny/transfercase rebuilt, due to the classic right wheel binding problem noticeable on turns. I've only put a couple of thousand on the car since, so I don't think it would be this. I just noticed the brake odor.
