check for a rusty spot from sitting with wet pads - try a couple of hard 40-50mph stops and see if it clears up.

If they drag it can be maybe 3 things....air in the lines or bad master cylinder...sticking piston in the caliper...or sticking caliper "sliders".

Sometimes one might stick real bad and get hot...this can melt the nylon inside the flexline and keep it from releasing.

Take the pads out. Voila, no more dragga, dragga, dragga.

I was thinking maybe remove the rotors. Even less weight than the remove pads option.

If anyone is selling some HF front knuckles and axles I'll buy them! Better not be more than free.

I'd be willing to trade my STD front knuckles and axles for a set of DX/SI front knuckles and axles.

How much would this cost us in terms of shipping? If I find some HF/STD stuff local I could just send you my old stuff, though I've seen people giving away my stuff local so I'm sure you could find the same.
