    Another job to do.

    Whilst doing the front lower arms today. I found one of my rear calipers is sticking. Argh. Explains that feeling of being pulled back when I let off.

    Ah yeh, I only had 1 axle stand on. With it settled the rear was sticking up. So I thought I'd check lol.

    Re: Another job to do.

    One of mine was the same but has freed off after a bit of a clean up

    I was thinking of getting either a rebuild kit or a new caliper at some point
