I pulled over again and the right brake caliper was smoking, so then I knew the caliper was locking up making it pull hard to the right. It finally released as I was trying to get it home but it's obvious that caliper isn't working correctly now. Finally, my question is- is there anyway to check and see if the caliper is still good or should I just put two new ones on the front?? Thanks everyone
If it were me, I would replace the two calipers. You could try flushing the system with fresh fluid to clean out anything in the lines before you buy the new calipers, but I wouldn't be surprised if you end up needing them.
As far as the Steering Stabilizer
goes, if yours is blown out you should replace it. But that won't cause your wobble issue. The stabilizer was just covering up your issue and it's more obvious without it. Check out all your bushings and do a dry steering test. Also check the track bar bolt on the axle side and the bolt hole to make sure it isn't wallowed out.
Let me know if you'd like a quote on a stabilizer or if you have any questions!
