i originally replaced the calliper because I broke off the bleeder after replacing the master cylinder. Instaled new caliper and didnt check to see if it was releasing ok. Wife drove it to store and back. It got so hot it melted the hubcap off. Replaced with 2nd caliper. Seemed to work ok. Replaced hose with 2nd caliper. 6 months later it ate the pads on that side. If the caliper was good, then why did the pad wear unevenly. The piston was cocked off to one side. Then again, your not supposed to wear the caliper down to the pad rivets either. Once the c clamp squared the piston in its bore, it went in easy.
