Rear brake seized

I got home from work opened the door and saw smoke floating by and it smelt like brake burning. I go to the drivers side rear brake and smoke is flowing out pretty good the other side seems ok. I wait about 2 hours and disassembled the caliper. Inspected everything and had my son push on the pedal so I could watch the brake caliper operate cleaned and lubed everything. Put it back together and everything seems to be fine. Just some sort of weird gremlin or something

was the slider pin stuck? they're notorious for failing on our cars and getting seized in the caliper.

I am not sure. I disassembled it and cleaned it up and lubed everything and it is working ok now

Next week I am going to replace my rear calipers and Rotors anyway

that happened on a customer car once, the only thing that needed to be done was lube the guide pins.

I strange in that sense. I do not trust that caliper for the long haul so I will be changing both rears as soon as possible.

Yep once something on my stang lets me down I lose my warm fuzzy. I use my stang as a daily driver and cant be having it let me down.

I had that problem on the passenger side 2 weeks ago. I did the natural thing adn upgraded to the Cobra brakes. Now they match my fronts. Now, if I can only find the E-brake cable I need, I'll be good. The old ones were smashed, and torn.
