Re:brakes sticking

Truck usually does it when its damp out and will grab the firat few applications. If its more so the rear brakes I would check to make sure the rear axles seals are not leaking causing this problem.



Good Luck

Re:brakes sticking

Yeah.. Mine does it when it rains a lot and I first start. I have gotten into the habit of riding the brakes alittle to dry them off before I get going to fast.. One of these days I will have to look in to this... CAn you tell which one is sticking?? Mine are the front...
