    Another question...

    I have looked into getting rebuilt calipers and all the auto parts stores in Canada seem to be selling them for 98$ including core exchange. I know I can get the rebuild kits for 46$ a wheel. Can I just do that? Or is my caliper in need of replacement since it might be damaged somehow?

    you can do that. what makes a caliper stick and bind is the piston usually gets pitted from the brake fluid eating away at it. so long as the piston surface is in good shape, then you'll be fine.

    Just for an update on this. I took off my two front calipers and inspected them. I had two seized caliper guide pins one on each side. Other then that the calipers looked fine... How can I know for sure they are sticking? I tried turning the wheels and it didn't seem like it was catching?

    Also I pulled and pushed to make sure they're wasn't any tie rod issues on both front tires and there was no play whatsoever.

    The car still pulls to the left and that makes me wonder what the hell could it be??? I don't mind replacing my both front calipers but if it still does it I would be pissed! lol Because my calipers look fine and when i brake they don't pull... and the wheel turns with mostly no resistance. You can hear the brake pad gliding but it's not hard to turn in any way.

    move the tires front to rear.

    if alignment is correct, the only things that will cause a pull are tires, brakes, and power steering.

    my next thought is to go back and have them make the caster equal on both sides. if this fixes it, then all is well. i'm thinking their alignment machine is out of calibration.
