Southern Lower Michigan
Bought new in 2008 4wd has 4 wheel disc brakes. Last month Left rear Dragging come to stop Smoke is pouring out from wheel well. Take it to dealer (5 days befor warfrenty runs out). dealer can't any reason. They replace Caliper, and it is working fine. A little over 200 miles, and 2 weeks later, commking back fron getting a pallet of seed, I get out and Strong break smell. Right rear brake is hot and smoking some.
This time no warranty. Dealer can not find a problem. Ther replace Caliper, and give me a big break on charges. (figure it is the luck of the draw. and am fine with it). Now two weeks later, and less than 150 miles Left Front is dragging. Got it scheuled to go n tomorrow .
Is there a Problem with the brakes on these trucks??

Same thing happened to mine and several others in the area. Ford would not replace anything on my brake system unless it happens again. I only have 17000 miles on my 2008 F250 so I may consider buying the extended warranty. My factory warranty runs out in October. Consider yourself lucky you got Ford to replace parts...they just lubricated mine and said we will fix it if it happens again. So far so good.

Actually you are still covered under warranty, the problem was documented and an attempt to fix was made while in warranty, that means they just haven't fixed it properly yet. Also repairs done by Ford should have something like a 12/12 warranty. FWIW we have an '08 F350 with 86K miles and the brakes are fine, I've never heard of any pattern failures with the brakes.

Sounds like it has to do with low mileage trucks that sit a lot then. I am betting all of them in the rust belt as well.

Ford truck calipers hang up on the rails they are supposed to slide on. Road salt makes them worse. There are kits to replace parts to improve the sliding. Lubrication has to be regular to have any continued effect.

Hmmm, seems to be a common problem. My 2008 F250 had the right rear caliper replaced at around 25K miles. Once it went out of warranty, brakes were having issues. They replaced master cylinder, no change, then did full brake job on front and back. A bit better, but not like original. Now 33K miles, but over three years. Not satisfied.

BTW, my truck does sit a lot given the 11 MPG. Mostly only drive it when hauling loads.

When I replaced the pads on my 06, I filed both the rails on the calipers to clean out the rust and the ears on the new pads to remove manufacturing imperfections so everything moves freely when assembled.

Funny I just had to replace the front passenger side caliper on my 2005 F-150 cause it was sticking. One of the pistens was siezed out and wouldn't go back in. I only have 36,000 miles on it.

Fighting it on a 2006 F250 now also. It was back at the dealer twice when it was under warranty now its on my dime. It seems that this is a common problem for these trucks. I wish there was permanant fix for this. Also my backing plate is rusted out for the parking brake that is never used.

Right rear caliper was replaced under warranty around 25K and just this past weekend the right front is also not releasing and will have to be replaced (52K now). Glad to see I'm not the only one.
