Hauled a small load to the recycler, no problem. Unloaded and pulled out of the Port of Tacoma and we smelled brakes. "Must be one of those container trailers" I said to my wife. When we got to the light I noticed it was me!! I pulled into the Les Schwab and we couldn't turn the wheel caliper stuck.
To make a long story short, they wanted $800 for a complete brake job (front axle). The pads and rotors look fine, lots of wear left. I think I'm going to just buy a caliper at napa for $67 and use the same pads and rotor. Is that crazy? I hope to save for a complete brake job later.
If there are no groves in the rotor's or pads then you can get away with just replacing the caliper and doing a brake flush now if you have any groves or hot spots on the rotor then it would be better replacing the front pad's and rotor's.
