The only problem I have had with mine is the parking break sticking when engaged for long periods o time and it being stiff when pulling it up to engage when it's cold. Don't know if that helps but there you go.

Here's what happens. The LCA design I'm the 05-09 S197s allow the ebrake cable to pass through the middle of the LCA to secure it in place. However, with the up and down motion of the rear axle, the cable gets worn through by the LCA. Enter water, sub zero temps and voila. Frozen brakes. Easy solution: wrap some hose around the ebrake cable or get new LCAs. J&M makes an awesome set that can't be beat.

Re: brakes

OP says it is not E-brake problem.
OP how many miles on car, also when you replaced the pads how did you retrack the caliper piston? Did you resurface the rotors?

I just replaced my LCA's. The e-brake cable jacket had a lot of wear, with less than 90k miles.

I had approx. 35K miles on mine, and the sheath was worn through. Had it replaced under warranty, but by 50K miles they were starting to wear again.

I do not know the year of your car, but if it is 07 or older it could be a bad caliper. Get a clear length of hose that fits on the bleeder. Loosen the bleeder and let the fluid run into the hose. If there are little black/brown particles in it , replace the caliper. If a car sits alot, the brake fluid absorbs moisture, that will make its way to the calipers and cause corrosion. When you re-track the piston to install the new pads the piston will stick on those spots when cold or hot.

Get some rubber insulated hose clamps, attach them to the LCA and they will not wear, 1 per side
