Subject: Need help with Ford truck brake problem

I have a '91 F-250 HD 4wd that has been dangerous to drive sicne it was
new. I am just laid back enough to let the warrenty expire without suing Ford under
the lemon law statutes.

This truck has always had a problem with the front calipers sticking, most
times on the right. It has burned up 4 sets of front brake calipers in 57,000 miles.
I am now faced with replacing the front calipers and also the discs because they
have been turned too many times.

I want to thank everyone who has responded to my problem, and would appreciate
any help from anyone who might know how to fix this truck.

I personaly believe that thest trucks deserve a recall, let me know what
you think!

Thanks;

Andrew is the 2WD correct never heard of anyone making or installing
lockers on a two wheel drive

change the caliper brackets they may be the problem...
when they heat up they expand and seize the caliper from sliding under
pressure and use anti-seize on the contacting metal...

anythings worth a try at this point...

somebody i know had the same problem before.

Could this be pointing to a problem with the Master Cylinder? Also, did
it burn up 4 sets of calipers, or did you mean pads. (Either way, it is
a major problem).

Give us more info (rear anti-lock?, regular or heavy duty F250?, etc).
