i know alot of people think fords suck but my 87 ranger 2 wheel drive keeps blowing front barke calipers any suggestions on what i should put in for brakes this is the secong time in the past year. thanks for any help i can get. Through further inspection of my problem i have discovered that my wheel bearings are shot and there is a bolt that has welded itself to the shaft.

F.O.R.D (fix or repair daily). NO just kidding, I used to a 99 4x4 ranger. Do you have a perportioning valve (few i missed spelled that!) check it out and see if maybe its bad.

Also make sure your front brakes arnt doing all the work. I had to adjust manually my rear brakes. and it made a HUGE difference.

any dodge boys have problems with a unfixable squeek from the front brakes? I have tried everything to get mine to stop squeeking. I just put new pad and rotors on and the SOB'S still squeeking it is about to drive me nuts

Sportram, did you put brake grease between the pad and the caliper piston? And are they after market or OEM? A lot of times after market will not have shims and that can cause squeaks

I agree with gopher, the grease is a must, I didnt put it on mine, (small world gopher my dad is a volvo master tech) and by heavy duty pads squeel more than a big at a slaughter house, and dust... few...talkin about some black rims. Add the grease it should cut the squeel down a notch
