My son-in-law has a 2000 Suburban. We replaced all 4 rotors and pads as well as the left rear caliper. The caliper was replaced because upon completion of the initial brake job during the test drive the left rear got super hot (smoking). Replacing the caliper and bled the brakes at the wheels and at the ABS module. This cleared the ABS and Brake warning lights but when we test drove again the left side brakes are significantly hotter than the right side. The test drive was 3 miles after which an IR thermometer reading of the rotors showed:
LF: 165 (degrees F) LR: 280 RF: 142 RR: 175
So it seems there is an imbalance here and not sure exactly what would cause this. The brake pedal has good stopping feel but in comparison to other vehicles it seems spongy (goes all the way to the floor when engine running and "panic" stop pressure applied). Any ideas on where to go next? The 280 degrees LR rotor is just starting to smell hot and it makes a rhythmic rubbing sound when driving so I am sure the pad is being continuously applied (even if just slightly).
