After replacing brakes and rotors vehicle acts as if the caliper is sticking and is delayed in the process of taking off. we have tested and replaced the calipers as well at this point and still its still doing it. any ideas of what it could be?

If the brakes are sticking after that repair the reason should be pretty obvious. Make sure you didn't put a twist in the rubber hose.

What makes no sense? The fact that you installed new parts and caused a new problem?

It's pretty hard for us to know what went wrong here without seeing the job.

what doesnt make sense is that you said the problem should be obvious even after changing all of the parts. obviously its not or i would have made a thread right? maybe someone else has run into the same problem. clearly you have not so thanks for the input that didnt help.

Again, this was not a naturally occurring problem. This problem was the result of your repair so no, no one has run into the same problem.

Obvious means an examination should clearly show what wheel is sticking and the actual cause should be right in front of you whether it be a jammed up pad, jammed up caliper slide, hardware installed wrong, incorrect parts or numerous other things that could have been caused by the installer.

"Sticking" - I take it you mean one drags now? General on disc brakes they can fuss to remove with a lip on rotor to clear. I ask how you determined it needed new calipers by checking them?? If rubber dust boots and slide pins are good and you tended to that plus pads wore evenly can be still go for a round.
All new but not hoses pads themselves can have stamped metal with like a lousy cut crease to remove and be a fight to put back. Stinks, even some top names in parts file those if so.


Note: I don't see much real new with calipers rather redone by the zillions hard to know what they looked like in doing so. If really harsh corrosion despite all clean looking reject those! This is "newer" to me but parts may on older same vehicle from who knows where?


Lube for brakes where they move on metal.


Some things that go wrong: Rubber hose is bad and might have bled out OK then or before be a "check" valve and not allow fluid pressure back out. Usually if they bleed OK and you didn't seriously let the caliper hang by hose, a no-no.


Bad rebuilds are where I am in just a year low volume vehicle work 3 were failures right away! That's a bummer nobody needs but happens,
