Okay so I got my car back from the body shop 2 weeks ago for a bent rear axel and when I start to slow down the brakes start pushing back at my foot after 10 mph , I took it back to the shop and they told me to take it to Firestone cause that where they took it to get aligned so I took it to Firestone and they told me that I have hot spots on my rotors and that I need new rotors and pads so I ordered them and i just got done installing them and its still doing it , I've bled the front but not the back yet , I'm starting to wonder iF its my ABS cause there's a clicking noise also . If any one has any idea whats going on plz let me know thanks !

Anytime you bleed your brakes always start at the master cylinder, then the farthest wheel (rear passenger), move on to the next (rear driver), then next (front passenger), then the last one!..

Could also be your ABS is acting up!..

I'm not certain of this, but it sounds like to me it could be a hub assembly. Is there anywhere else you can go to get a 2nd opinion?

Only dumb question is the one not asked!.. You know were your brake fluid reservoir is?... Right below it (its actually mounted to the top of) is the master cylinder!..

Yes and yes!.. But make sure you've got plenty of fluid on hand and don't let that little tank get low!..

Just a quick thought here!.. Do you have any warning lights kicking on?.. Is your ABS light kicking on when this is happening?..

At any rate two things I would do if I were you!.. 1. Have a code scanner ran on your car!.. 2. Get a Haynes Repair Manual!.. It will walk you step by step how to repair and replace just about anything on your car!.. But still don't hesitate to ask any and all questions on here!..

Then odds are its nothing to do with your ABS!.. But I personally would still run a scanner on it!..

If your talking about the bleeders on the calipers themselves, then they are all the same!..
