  With all the Super Duty stuck caliper talk I'll tell my story from last Sept. 2013 F450 diesel dually, crew cab, long bed, 4X4, just under 30,000 miles pulling my 34' 5th wheel and in Burlington Vermont a caliper stuck and heated up the disc. General consensus is that I don't drive it often enough. Truck and RV have been coast to coast through 43 states but it does sit too long between trips so I'm trying to use it more often even if I'm not hauling anything.

Not much anymore. About 300 miles last year. It sits so high my wife can't climb up in it anymore even with the running boards.  Thinking about one of the 1500 Dodges with 4 corner air that drops 2 inches extra because I can't pick her up these days. :)

I rebuilt all of the calipers in my superduty with new pistons and square cut orings myself a while back and so far none have stuck. I used a small engine hone and cleaned up the bores nice, also flushed all the fluid at the same time. Figure if somebody else can rebuild them and make them last 2 weeks I can't really do any worse.... ha

Generally speaking (not brand or model specific) use to be that the pistons would stick especially when pushed back in to put new pads because they were dry between the seal ring and the dust boot, a mechanic friend taught me to pump the piston most of the way out and slide the dust boot in and clean that part of the piston then pull the dust boot back out and spray some lube in there before pushing the piston back in.

I can't recall what kind of lube it was, I'm thinking some type of light grease that could withstand some heat.

Every manufacturer has a few lemons out there. A friend has a '14 550 that rolls up the windows and turns the heat all the way up, and all the lights stop working. In the summer! :D

My F350 gets it if you let the front tire pressure drop below 65 psi also. Got a warning notice from Ford about it years ago. :)

At least if you have a steel truck it will slowly rust away. Aluminum ones disintegrate from that liquid they use. ;D ;D

That is funny because I had to file for the lemon law for a Red 1989 Chevy 2500HD. The first year of the IFS front end. Brake and front end problems. Spent 8 weeks of the first 4 months I had it in the shop waiting for parts and gm techs to look at it. Told Chevy to give me a different truck, they said never. Filed the papers and the court date was set. Got a call the day the papers were served from the head of GM in Westchester County and he met me at the GM dealer the next with a check for the truck, cap bed liner, and threw in the extra thousand dollar rebate I got when I bought it. They knew they would loose in court and didn't want the mark on their record. Headed to the Ford dealer on the way home. 8)

The new liquid stuff is magnesium chloride and it causes deep corrosion in aluminum. https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S221450951730030X here is a article about how it affects different metals. The old stuff they used forever was calcium chloride and aluminum can form an oxide layer to protect itself from that is what I understand just like aluminum boats do in salt water. Time will tell as more road crews spread the liquid for lower temp de icing. :)
