Brakes not releasing
alright, got some problems with the brakes. Seemingly at random, they will "lock up" so to speak. The brake pedal becomes extremly firm and the truck runs like someone is applying the brakes constantly. For example, normally I can put it in drive or reverse and the truck will roll at an idle, now it just kinda "leans" forward or backward and holds still. Is there some sort of valve or something that would be causing this?
Edit: It's not the calipers sticking, it has 4 new calipers, 3 new caliper mounting brackets, and all new caliper pins. I heard something about the type of grease used causeing the boots on the caliper pins to swell and act like the brakes are sticking. Would this only be under high temps or something? I used high temp grease (reddish stuff) in the caliper pins, the same stuff i used in my front locking hubs. Any ideas?
