    Sorry if this in the wrong spot. Couldn't find brakes in general questions. Move if needed, thanks! Are these the correct calipers for this Jeep? I have never seen brake cylinders so off from the pads? I purchased the Jeep this way, so I have no idea if these were swapped or not. They look very...
  2. KL Cherokee 2014 & up
    Hi everyone. So I was driving this weekend and my front driverside caliper locked up. After some time.letting it cool off I very slowly drove home. The next day it was unlocked. I have the heavy duty dual piston front calipers. I want to repair them by replacing the pistons in both. Does anyone...
  3. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    I've recently come into possession of a 2011 JK that is the new bane of my existence. I could go on for days about all the issues I've had to chase down with it, but the most recent issue is really stumping me. This summer, the front left had the outer brake pad fall out and the caliper piston...

    I have a 2016 JK Sahara Unlimited. I have a 3.5" lift and run 35's (Toyo). My brakes are ready to be replaced, both front and rear. I am looking to buy either larger, or better quality rotors, calipers, and brake pads. The Jeep color is Hydro Blue and the hope was to buy better quality brake...
  5. JK Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I have managed to wear the OEM brake pads down to 2mm on the rear. Time for new pads. OR is it time to upgrade? First off the brake pads are worn oddly. Read inside pads are down to 2mm and the rear outside pads are at 8mm. That seems odd to me that the inside pads are nearly gone yet the...
  6. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So im almost positive my front passenger brake is rubbing. i smell burning brakes. and i have significantly more dust on passenger side wheel than driver. Also when i brake sometimes it pulls right violently. Im going to replace the passanger caliper and all pads. Should i also replace the...
  7. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    I know i've seen something about this before, but I can't find it. My 95 ZJ needs new pads bad. But, new pads won't fit. The pad ear to caliper mount contact point has a huge dip in it, like the ear of the pads dug out a hole. I know this is a common problem, but can't find any write ups and...
  8. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I recently replaced my brake pads and realized that the boots on my calipers are a little torn. My readings led me to learn that this can lead to lock-ups and warping of the rotors after a significant time. I'm going to replace my calipers but saw on Rock Auto, 4WP, and other sides that there...
  9. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    im sure this has been covered before but I figured id still share this with everyone :thumbsup: so my rear brakes were somewhat catching/grinding so I popped the wheels off and pulled the brake caliper off and found worn in notches in my caliper brackets. so for this repair you need a welder and...
  10. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So about a year ago while on the highway, I felt like I was dragging on the right front. Get a little further and the right front brake is smoking. Tow it to a shop, because I didn't have time to get into it myself. They say the fronts are fine but the rears are junk and replace everything...

    I have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler running on 37s. When I purchased it there was a slight wander in the front end, which I corrected mostly by adjusting the steering gear box as shown here, and getting an alignment. I'm probably going to have to replace the steering gear box with something a little...

    front rotors getting grooves worn in - a friend/mechanic says I need new caliper brackets but 95 GC has one piece unit, bracket (where caliper attaches) is not removable is there a replacement part? cant seem to find it listed anywhere or is there a fix? I got entire wheel hub assembly from...
  13. Tires & Wheels
    I have a set of new 33" tires currently on steel 15" rims (5x5.5 intended for my CJ7). I want to swap the tires over to 15" rims that will fit my new JK (5x5). I've been told I will need to grind on the calipers in order to fit any 15" wheel. I will be lifting the jeep JK and adding spacers...
  14. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    So been gone while, have not been able to mess with my Jeep, 2 family members died. But I'm back for now. I bought a new master cylinder, and put it on. Bench bled it, and it has sat in the jeep for 2 or 3 weeks waiting on me to bleed the brakes. It was thundering so i decided to go bleed...
  15. ZJ Grand Cherokee Forum
    So after much searching for a bit of a brake upgrade I could do to my ZJ I settled with, admittedly scammy sounding website name, CrossDrilledBrakes.com. ( http://www.crossdrilledbrakes.com/jeep/1997/grand-cherokee-4-0l-l6/brakekit ) I was kinda worried since they were cheaper than a lot of name...
  16. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So about 1 1/2 years ago my right caliper locked up and caught on fire. Put the fire out let it cool down and got that caliper replaced at the dealership. Now, im not sure if im on my way to that again. Just two days ago I took my tires off to clean my brakes with brake cleaner since my brakes...
  17. Jeep CJ Forum
    All, My CJ has a click that gets faster/slower with my speed, and from reading other threads it looks like there's a good chance it's the anti-rattle clip on my left or right front brakes. I crawled underneath the jeep today to see if I could find the clip/spring, but couldn't see anything. I...
  18. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    I've got an '04 GC Laredo 4X4 with a squeak. It's a rear drivers side. It only happens when driving forward or making a right turn. I don't get it in reverse or during a left turn. If I put the whole back end up I can tell it's coming from the rear drivers tire. I've replaced the caliper...

    Water in Brake Caliper..I think While changing my brake line for a longer one for my lift. the left side did what I expected, leaked brake fluid, a little from the caliper, and more from the line. The right side, however, when disconnected from the line, the caliper "gushed" a watery yellowish...
  20. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    My right front brake is dragging on the lower side of the inner pad. It doesn't look to be the piston. It seems one of the sleeves that hold the bolts doesn't slide back and forth all the way. Can this be fixed, or should the whole caliper be replaced? Thanks (not actual picture of my caliper)
