|AzTJ||^ Bluvikng - it prolly had something to do with the F-350's having a rotor-hub rather than just a rotor, and those are about $130+ each... might have also needed the bearings replaces, if it has them instead of being part of the hub unit which could have upped the price as well.|

|bluvikng||Good luck Gonzag, I just took my F-350 to the mechanic for brake failure, and $2700 later, I had brakes again. I didn't even know I had ABS, until they were all fixed. Granted the brakes were so shot, that I had to have brand new rotors and calipers, and pads. There were a few other things that got fixed too, but it was still a wallup of a bill. At least my tow rig is in good working order again.|

Yep, tomorrow she's going under full inspection...
Let's see what they'll find...????

|bluvikng||Sign I saw in a repair shop, "sorry I can't fix your brakes, but I can install a louder horn."|

|AzTJ||sounds like you have a sticky caliper or worn out guide pins for the caliper. I'd deffinatly check it out before you do a lot more damage if any has really occured.|

My Jeep does the same thing. On the right side, I did put a new brake line in an caliper. I'm going to change out the left one as soon as I have the time.
have you bleed the brakes lately, if you have and have gotten any brake fluis on the pads it will cause this to happen. I learned that they hard way...

|MR.CLIFFORD||has this been a gradual problem or all of a sudden?? If all of a sudden what have you changed? Need more info. What axles are you running? Have you ever upgraded any portion of your brake system??|

2 issues regarding braking:
1 - When I brake, the Jeep tends to slightly go/turn to the left.
2 - The wheels block very quickly and easily without putting that much pressure on the pedals.
This makes Emergency braking quasi impossible to manage!!!
What's wrong with those damn brakes?
