Hey everybody, this is my first post on the wrangler forum and I have been the proud owner of a jeep for almost 24 hours now!! woot!
I just purchased a 1998 Jeep wrangler with less than 70,000 miles. It has a 3" lift, 31" tires, I6, front and rear diff locks, and a brake problem.
This Jeep has basically been sitting in a garage for the past 5 years, it seems to run good, but began smoking during a 25mi ride to a friends house and back home. The symptoms are:
Jeep is pulling to the right
Smoke was coming from the front passenger wheel well
The one rim was considerably hotter than all the others
The disc actually has two grooves maybe a 1/16th of an inch wide that have been worn out
I going to try and fix the problem after work today, but would like a little insight as to what the problem could be. I have a jeep service manual, an interest in doing this fix myself, and some mechanical know how. I just need a little guidance to get me going in the right direction.
