    Hey guys, me and the girlfriend just got back from doing a little mudding in our 85 chevy 4x4, got in some off camber spots and stuff and i was just wondering what youguys do to get the brakes working good again, I noticed on the trip home that i have a caliper either not working or the brakes are slipping badly on that side, the brakes are new with less than 100 miles on them so i know everything is good there... please let me know how you get them good again (pull tires and wash out with water or a complete dissasembly of the fronts and wash out??? This is a daily driver so any help will be appreciated.. Thanks
