I just did my rear brakes, discs and pads and i replaced the rear passenger caliper cause it was seized and i could smell burning breaks and it smoked alot lol well im still smelling a burning brake smell. Could it just be from the new pads sitting against the disc till they wear a lil? Cause it was a lil tight getting the pads and caliper back on for both sides

this just happened to me my front right seized up and I replaced both front calipers because I hurd once one goes the other isn't too far behind so if I were you id do the other that you didn't replace just a thought that one could be starting to sieze and is your jeep pulling to the left or right when you hit the gas or break cause mine was a stuck front right and when id hit the break it would pull left and it would go right when accelerating.
