I'm about to loose it guys! My calipers keep freezing up every 6 or so months. I don't know what to do! I replace the calipers, I've flushed the whole system to get any gunk out, replaced the rear brake line because it was rusty as hell.... I can't figure it out and every time one locks up I smoke a set of pads and warp a caliper....

What keeps causing this repeatedly ?

It's been damn near every one at one point (and when one went out I always replaced both on that axle.

They seem to just not release fully. Also have really weird brakes, if I slam on the pedal it's super stiff at first then the pedal gets soft and nosedives...

What kind of slide pin grease you using? If none.....there you go! To much is not good either.

^exactly. O.p. said nothing about greasing the slide pins. I've seen it over and over, they get dry and start to stick

Sorry the post was short because I wrote a whole long post and then the app crashed and I lost it....

It's the caliper pistons that fail EVERY time, one piston freezes up. Nothing to do with the slide pins which are greased properly... What the hell is up with my calipers

where are you getting replacements? Some of the cheap remans are prone to fail

Advance auto parts and oriellys

Note this time the caliper didn't freeze permanently, when I started the truck to move it into the garage the brakes where normal. Could this mean master cylinder

Master will cause all to stick, not just one. Sounds like another bad caliper. I replaced my rears with remans, about 2 months later, one went bad again, replaced under warranty and been good since(2 years)
