Baffled By Brakes
Thanks anyone who takes the time to read this and reply.
Vehicle: 2006 Chevy Equinox 2WD
Just got done replacing the front brakes, the previous rotors felt pretty warped. I replaced front rotors, pads, hoses, and calipers, and bled both sides until fluid was clear. The brakes seem to operate fine, pedal is firm, and ABS is functioning. There are no dash lights or any other indicators.
Problem: The front rims and lugs are almost too hot to touch after a 5-10 mile drive. There doesn't appear to be any dragging. The wheels spin freely when jacked up. I've sped up to 5 mph, and put the vehicle in neutral, and it will actually roll for over a quarter mile before stopping. What could be going on?
Am I down to the m.cylinder? Are the pads that I put on just a bit too tight? I do with I had an IR thermo for more details, but...
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
