2007 Ford F150 xlt supercab 4X4

I have a 07 F 150 that i had the front brake pads, rotors, and calipers replaced, a day ago (reputible shop) and now every so often the brakes get extremly hot to the point of smoking, i had the system also flushed and refilled at the time of replacment, after it sits for a while and cools off it runs okay and then when i drive it again it is like the brakes are just grinding away, with out any pressure on the pedal, to the extent that is shakes at a reasonable speed and slows the car down when i let off the gas more thatn normal. it feel like the calipers are not releasing the brake
on occasion what could the problem be? it does not do this every time i drive the car, i took it back to the shope and it did not seize up all the way there, so they are thinking im crazy... any help would be appriciated.

efx4 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Might want to go down to the 2004-2008 F150 forum. My guesses would be pads over shimmed or not seated properly, calibers not releasing properly, warped rotors, or anything in between.

drivers side window button 2007 xlt

The window will go down when pushing down the button, but when going up you have to hold the button midways and sometimes play with the button to make it close all the way! Any suggestions how to fix problem?
Thanks,
Scott

5.4 spark plugs

Going to install new spark plugs and tryed to remove the front one on the passenger side, it was tight, moved over to the front one on the drivers side it was also tight. My son is at home right(12:00) now spraying some PB spray on the the plugs. Going to try it when I get home this evening which will be about 4:30pm. Anyone with some suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
