Intermittent brake drag
I am a refugee from Dieselstop so please pardon my lame post count!!
I am having an intermittent problem with my rear brakes. As I am driving along (I can go 200 miles and never have a problem) I will feel the truck starting to drag, EGTs go up as does the boost as I try to maintain speed. I am assuming it is the rears because it is not pulling at all to one side or the other. I thought it was the slides but I cleaned and lubed them up. The pads were getting low so while I had it apart I replaced the warped rotors and pads with NAPA Gold parts. The problem persisted so I have replaced both rear calipers. Unfotunately I still have the problem.
Could one of the brake line hoses be "valving", dirty fluid??
Any thoughts would be appreciated!
