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.

What is a Veteran?
A "Veteran" - whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve- is someone who, at one point in their life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to, and including their life."
That is honor. And there are way too many people in this country today, who no longer understand that fact.
