Been a long time since I ordered from there, I put in my VIN number and got to this page: https://www.gmpartsdirect.com/auto-p...nt-brakes-scat

I don't see an option to buy a loaded caliper with support and all, just all the separate pieces etc. Have no idea what hardware comes with the caliper.

Re: 2013 GMC 3500 brakes issues

If the pads an calipers keep crapping out this soon I'm pretty sure its an ABS issue or something else that is holding pressure . Also you dont need to buy OEM its nice but not needed . How do I know because we have somewhere around 10k vehicles in our fleet and we never buy OEM brakes . From Chevy Volts to big rigs .

Re: 2013 GMC 3500 brakes issues

I changed the hoses and noticed an immediate difference. The truck no longer pulls hard to the right when stopping. I still have a pulsating wheel when driving due to the warped rotor on the right from overheating.

Before I buy more parts I'll run it like this for a while and see if the right front no longer sticks. I wish I had a lathe, I have 3 sets of rotors with hardly any miles on them that all need turning.

Re: 2013 GMC 3500 brakes issues

How would one go about testing if the anti-lock brake module in the culprit?

Re: 2013 GMC 3500 brakes issues

I'd you can go to Youtube and search for anti-lock brake testing procedures. That's what I did when my dually brakes started acting. My issue was a bad speed sensor on the LF hub.
PS, glad the new hoses made your situation better.

So far no heated rotor or brakes smell. However wheel pulsates badly, but only sometimes...
