brake drag

so had a problem with my caliper sticking and wearing my pads down to metal and destroying the rotor.
went ahead and replaced the caliper, rotor and pads on BOTH sides.
I notice that one side the rim gets extremely hot to the touch after a drive where the other isn't bad at all...
wtf
I know some heat is normal but after a drive if you park and touch your rim do u burn your hand hah
I am afraid its dragging on the one side still.
any way to test this

Put the car in the air and spin that wheel. If it drags it drags.
Recommend a thru cleaning and application of anti seize on any slide pins etc.

You can do it with the car running as well so you can see if the caliper is sticking when there is pressure from the hydroboost. Have someone sit in the car and spin the tire with the rear in the air and have them hit the brakes and then release and then try spinning again.

Did you lube up the slide pins in your calipers before you installed or did you just trust that the 12 year old Chinese kid that remanufactured them actually did it? Sadly this is not a joke...

do both front tires need to be off the ground to check
should the car be in park or neutral
the slide pins are lubed everything should be installed properly
I don't hear any noises while driving but that rim sure gets hot. maybe that's normal hah never really checked before.

Well if it is your front that you believe is dragging then yes.
Put it in the air and spin both. Then compare. Does one hang up?
"Should" be installed properly sounds shaky. If in doubt tear it down and clean and grease. 30 mins for peace of mind.

My 01 did the same thing with it in the air spun tires found right front binding. I shook the brake hose and it would release. Turned out the internal rubber brake lines were breaking down and replaced the with steel braided lines from steeda

The rubber lines especially in 94/95 cars are know to fail but it happens with all of them eventually. Always a good idea to replace with braided.

jacked the car up and the driver side spins easily and the passenger side has resistance but still spins. noticeable difference. The calipers are brand new, could I have got a defective one?

Is this the slide pin that you guys say to remove and lube?
can I just remove them as is or do I need to remove the caliper completely?

Okay I pulled the slide pins and lubed them up better then they were and it seemed to free it up a bit.
with the caliper off the rotor spins but u can hear a lil dragging with the caliper on I can actually turn it now but has resistance. im thinking the rotor is probably warped.
any other things I can try before replacing the rotor?

Does that turn on the hub? Maybe pull the rotor off and spin in case a hub assembly/bearing is out.

Would the brake drag tho If it's a bearing and ya was spinning by the hub. Once the calliper is on that's when I get all the resistance

Your rotor has a slight warp if its still good the just have it turned it will take care of the warp if not then just replace the rotor

You cannot turn a warped rotor. You need to replace it.

No. I used to turn rotors. You will not get an even cut.

I used to turn rotors as well and depending on how much material is left you can get them straight again...

I will buy a new one and see if that helps. Also just learned how to blead the brakes by myself so I will do that also. .. Rotors are not that expensive I would assume having them machined down would cost a bit no?

Sometimes new are cheaper than turning... Other times for not a whole lot more, you can have new. I think when I quit we were getting $15 for each rotor.

If it was warped, we quit trying and told them to buy new or take it elsewhere.
