All,
Need some help on a mechanical problem with my TJ. I have a 98 sport that is stock,(m30 front axel) and the right front caliper under hard braking is locking up and creating a dangerous stopping situation when i am in traffic. I tried bleeding out the left side caliper but it did not seem to help. when I hit the brakes hard like this it also pulls hard to the right. the pads and rotors are almost brand new so i'm not sure where the problem lies. any help would be greatly appreciated!

Will Confused

When mine did this, I found the slider pins on the caliper were sticking. Check to see if you're having the same problem. I just replaced the caliper(s). Did both in case the driver side was about to do the same. I bought lifetime calipers at AutoZone in the neighborhood of $25 ea. + cores.
