I had the front wheels off and it seems the caliper is not completely disengaged. Will cleaning the caliper pins solve this? Do I need to replace the pads and rotor at the same time? Thanks
My 200 S10 shakes uncontrollably at times when braking. on 2000 Chevrolet S10
There are several reasons the caliper may not release completely.Hose restriction , slide-pins(as you mentioned) , worn bracket , sludge build-up in caliper piston area , causing the piston to bind. The vibration is most likely due to an over-heated & warped rotor , which should be replaced with pads (both sides rec.) FIND CAUSE of problem first, before repair.
