I just took the burb about a mile and a half up the road and back. The brakes have been less than perfect, but I blamed it on the drum brakes being full of mud. I got back to the yard and the pedal was very soft and crappy. I had previously thought the front driverside brake caliper screw might be slightly stripped, but I just tightened it down a bit more. I saw steam coming from behind my wheel.. that can't be good... looked and some fluid was leaking around the base of the bleeder screw and turning to steam.. Touched the dust shield and it scaleded my hand. Spit on the caliper and it turned to steam like an exhaust manifold would do. Felt of the passenger side dust shield and it was un naturally hot, but not quite as hot.. So what gives? Something majorly wrong with the brake system, or burning up the front wheel breaking(s)?? I know whatever it is, this can't be good!! EDIT: I just found out that the driver side drive flange and knuckle will evaporate spit too... I'm guessing I need to look for a new wheel bearing, and learn how to replace it.. Also, it might not be the best thing for the ball joints on that side to get that dang hot!! EDIT again.. pics.. it might be hard to tell from the pics, but the pad is touching the rotor. I can still turn the rotor by hand, but it does have some drag from the brake pads... so I assume this caliper is locked, and its the culprit of spit sizzling drive flange and caliper?
