I was leaving a house after mowing my first yard of the day, loaded up and headed down the street. I applied the brakes, pedal went straight to the floor. I knew something was pretty messed up, so limping back to my house to switch out trucks, I wondered how much I was going to have to spend
. Got back, looked under the truck, back right wheel was soaked with brake fluid, and still dripping off the caliper.
Got it towed to Mid Tenn Ford, basically the inside pad was gone, missing, off the truck, so the pistons were digging into the rotor. Ruined the caliper and rotor on the passenger side, so getting two new calipers for the rear as well as rotors and pads. It sucks cuz I was just about to order my SCT and EGR delete. But it's going to cost $800 bucks
. I though about doing it myself, and very well could but I don't have the time this weekend and need to truck back by Tuesday.
What I was wondering is how the pad could just vanish, I had the truck inspected when I bought the truck in June, brakes were good from what I saw and my mechanic said they checked out. I never felt the brakes drag, grind, or anything. I haven't even stood on the brakes in a burnout yet
Anyone ever heard of such a freak thing??
Sorry about the story book, I get carried away...
