I thought I had a stuck caliper. Instead my only problem was one rusty caliper mounting bolt. The two mounting bolts must move back and forth to allow the caliper to function properly. The rusty caliper bolt has a rubber boot that protects the brake grease. That boot failed and the bolt eventually rusted which prevented correct caliper functioning.
Just wanted to post a note so my Mustang Family can spend money on cool mods rather than unneeded calipers. You would still have the problem if you only change out calipers.
So can we all sit down to our computers and the next round of calipers are on you?
BTW, replace both bolts and both rubber boots and use the high temperature brake grease to complete the job correctly.
