BOTH FRONT BRAKES DRAGGING ON ROTORS

1997 Dodge Caravan

Brakes problem
1997 Dodge Caravan 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 155000 miles

What is causing brake pads to drag on front rotors?

Changed out calipers and pads, and still they are dragging.


Would this be ABS relatred or hydraulic manifold?


Thanks,

When the drag happens jack up one side and loosen the bleeder, does it spin free now? If yes chang the flex hose, if no, check rear brakes and master cylinder and fluid for signs of contamination. Such as some one putting tranny or power steering fluid in the master. If it has a ride hieght sensing valve in the rear, it may need to be adjusted, you need a pressure gauge to do that!
