Caliper Issues with Dodge Dakotas?
I am a girl and don't know much about vehicles, so please go easy on me!
I have a 2006 Dodge Dakota (2WD, 4.7L, V-8) and I am going through calipers like crazy. I have a lifetime warranty on the calipers, but they keep seizing and have to be replaced. I am not unusually hard on my brakes, but the most recent issue left me with the right front caliper seized and that same side has just that brake pad 95% worn. As a result, I am getting just that side serviced since the left side is a-ok. This also explains why my truck is pulling because the mechanic explained that since the caliper is seized the brake is constantly on.....that explains the smell! I have tried searching the Internet for similar Dodge issues for calipers, but no luck so far. Has anyone experienced this or can send me a link to anything they can find related to this issue? I am tired of paying money for the repair. Even though the caliper has a warranty I still need to pay for the labor. Thanks in advance!
