07 f250 rear brakes get wayyy to hot?
Just picked up this truck, its nearly mint condition, considering its got the 5.4L 3v gasser and 138k miles! Anyhow, drove it 400 miles flawlessly, took it out today 8 miles no problem, drive another 10 miles one way, 10 back and in the driveway i smell "burning paint smell", i discover the rear brake rotors are so DARN hot that the whole wheel is redicuously hot to the touch and the back brakes and suspension is "ticking" while its cooling down. Ebrake was off, and i wasnt hard on the brakes at all. My back f350 brakes on the other trucks never break a sweat, what could be wrong? locked up calipers or ebrake? BOTH rear wheels were equally hot and i noticed the truck seems like it slowed down quicker than average and felt like it was towing a load when full throttle, but empty?
