I took my rear caliper and rotor off and they seemed ok i guess so i put them back on and tried to drive my car agai. I think my rear calipers have gone bad and im wondering what are some signs when this happens? When i pump my brakes when the car is on the brake pedal seizes up. Its the same thing as if you just keep tapping the brake when the car is off and the pedal stiffens up. also if i drive for a couple minutes the brakes start to stiffen up and the car will come to a stop. i have to wait a couple hours before i can drive again. any ideas? thanks
