Mine are on their way to doing the same. I already have the new calipers i`m just waiting for all the snow to melt to put them onSo... Just as I got back to posting and updating this happens
Whie driving I felt the FJ pulling hard to the left, I stopped at the side and lots of smoke came from the front driver side wheel...
Yep, u guessed it... Front caliper seized tight 😫
Been doing lots of trips in mud and water lately, not a real fan but it what we got lately here... always washed after but still
Both of them are in bad shape.
Gonna have to go back to the original Calipers for now, clean and give as much maintenance as possible to see if I can save them without having the risk of it happening again.
And if not, well, new ones or just keep the originals.
Looks like good time for new rotors as well.
And to wash much better in the future right after arriving back. (gotta pay for mistakes)
The Yucatán weather and saltiness doesn't do well to the metal parts, but I didn't think to that level.
