Default Front brake Hang up


i am having some problems with my front brakes,

The front brakes are constantly applied, I replaced the calipers, master, pads and rotors,

its almost like like the Rotor is being pressed into the rear brake face! Has anyone experienced this issue?

im pretty much at a loss and itís becoming frustrating!


I can can move the truck by Lighting the torque on the Lug nuts, allowing me to move it out of my drive! Other than that, no luck yet!

If you have not checked or replaced the flexible lines that go from the hard line to the caliper, you will want to do that. If they have never been replaced, just replace them. They are pretty cheap.

I'm not sure what your year and submodel is. If you have a proportioning valve, then that could be stuck if it is just one side of the front. If it is both sides of the front, then maybe the piston for the front in the brake master cylinder is staying closed. Have you elevated the vehicle and tried to hand spin each side of the front wheels/tires?

If it is blocking another vehicle in the driveway, then you can crack the bleeders to release the pressure and use the parking brake handle as your brake to reposition the vehicle.
