Front brakes sticking & smoking!!

The front end is smoking because the hubs/rotors are so hot! Not sure if it is a wheel speed sensor causing the problem or what. Both sides doing the same thing. Didn't see an ABS light. Sitting in truck waiting for it to cool down now.

It's gonna be your Brakes that are doing that...

Stuck caliper pins / stuck piston in caliper / bad hose / bad master / maybe an ABS issue.

You need to dig-deeper once you can work on it again.
