Bad Day

Left the house today to go get my leveling kit installed, noticed a whistling noise during acceleration. Stopped by a dealership and the diesel tech said it sounded like an exhaust leak. Said he couldn't even touch it until late next week. Called another dealer and they told me to bring it in today. I'm about a mile out and I smell brakes. Turns out my front right rotor was screwed up and wouldn't release. Made it to the dealer, now just waiting on the phone call to see what the damage is.

Probably an up pipe. If that's your biggest repair consider yourself lucky

Had it happen 3 times to my 6.0, finally said enough is enough when my wife who was 6 months preggers at the time and I came home from church in May to a rear right that was smoking so bad I thought it would pop the tire off the rim.

Hope it just needs a new line or new caliper.
