Here's my trouble: got installed new brake pads, disks, calipers and everything was done normally with the required adjustments. When I drive, in about 20 minutes of city driving, the brake pedal gets more and more higher until the brakes are completely squeezing the disk, like jammed calipers. It comes so hot that the first time, I got smoke coming from the passenger side brakes, It seems to happen only on the passenger side. After a couple hours stoped, the pedal go back to it's original position (need to push the pedal mid-course to brake normally. After some time, I don't even need to push the pedal to stop the car.) I'm outta ideas (I'm still thinking about a 15 pound hammer.)
