 My '02 F350 would push the pedal up and offer zero braking and you would just run over your own mailbox in slow motion.  :D

The ABS on my 05 F350 works great on snow. Once the motor kicks in the pedal bounces but it stops really good when empty. With a load it never kicks in. If only I  could find calipers that last more then a couple years.
You should have it looked at. May only take a simple software update to fix.

I've seen discussion  both ways,

To me, you have to have a full set of good snows first and foremost
then a little ballast if its a truck.

my 350 and 550 would pull to the right. took the abs fuse out and they stop like they should. brake calipers dont seem to last long before they stick. they did come from napa. that could be part of it

Napa high quality? Maybe compared to some of the others. I asked carquest about brake calipers.  They said They get there's from the same rebuilds. I find most parts are less money or close at the Ford dealer. But I do have a fleet account

I've had worse luck with stuck calipers on the ones I got from the Ford dealer than the ones I've got from Napa. And at least Napa is only 5 miles down the road when I need to warranty one compared to 50 miles to the Ford dealer....

Must be a Ford thing because I've had more stuck calipers on my superduty than I had on all the other trucks I've owned combined.

At least they stock everything for Ford brakes. That's nice, considering you habe to work on  them every other weekend.  :D

My local NAPA stocks all brake parts and u joints for Ford trucks. And if its sold out, they can have it the next morning. A friend of mine has 7 or 8 Super Dutys. Usually. one of them is running.  :D

chevytaHOE5674,

  I work at a Toyota dealer, we do A LOT of calipers!  We run a lot of 4 piston calipers on our Trucks and SUV's we replace a lot of stuck calipers.  We get a little better luck out of the Toyota Reman units than the aftermarket ones.  When a Toyota reman is available it's usually in the same price range as the aftermarket.  We have the best luck with calipers from Autopart International aka Foreign Autopart

Bruno,

  I've got a guy over in Rye that has rebuilt 3 or 4 Chevy HD Speedo clusters for me.  He does a good job, replaces all the bulb...  Pretty sure it was around $200 each, maybe a little less???  It's been a while.  He also rebuilt a "fish stick" for my old Fisher 8ft HD plow.

My F350 has gone through 12 calipers in 35k miles.  Ford quit making them, all l can find are rebuilds now. NAPPA  by me keeps them in stock. Buy online and pickup in the store saves 10%. :)
