Re: Dragging rear disc brakes
Bad calipers are a known issue on the Blazer/Jimmy rear discs. I had to replace both of them on my 98 Jimmy after screwing around with new pads then new rotors and pads. Kept dragging. Replaced both calipers and no issues. Had the same issue with the right rear caliper on my 03 Blazer. Just because you can compress them doesn't mean they are working as they should. They get a little dirt and junk in them and they wont release like they should. Just get a new caliper. The caliper only is around $45 exchanged at parts stores. The ones I got for my Jimmy were twice as much or more because I got the whole caliper and bracket. I didn't know you could only get the caliper at that time.
