Overheating brakes I replaced the brake booster the combination valve fully loaded calipers the brake hoses the master cylinder bled the brakes numerous times on the front wheels only.The rear brakes are drums.And have RWAL ONLY.The rotors where also resurfaced.Still after all of this the calipers are still clinching the rotors so tight that the brakes overheat extremely.Particularly the right side caliper.When it's hot the wheel can't be turned by hand without a lot of force.Can the RWAL system cause front wheel lock up ? That seems to be the only thing thats left.


Good question, on the antilock system is a bleader too and bleade it the same way you bleade the caliper. After all is done adjust the rear brakes, they should have a drag to them.

I would go with not bled correctly

The booster should hold up with a hard pedal until
you start the engine, then vacuum causes it to move
down when pressing on the brake

I think the problem is the brake pad or caliper, brake pad are too thick or the caliper are not good casted.
First try to confirm if you get a right brake caliper ,then confirm the brake disc ,brake pad, if they all ok, tear down the bracket of caliper, put into brake pad, then put into brake rotor.
