    :neutral:i have a 2001 2500HD 4x4 and for some reason i think my back left brake is getting partially stuck. when i bought the truck almost every time i would stop, it was acctually smoking from burning the pads. i changed the caliper becauseb the old one was leaking as well as new pads, after driving a while and i park it i can still smell the burnt brakes. any sugestions will help

    i never even thought about that, im guessing that will be my project for tom, but once i changed the caliper, it quit burning them to the point to where it was smokeing, thats y i think its a problem with the main brake

    While changing the caliper and pads you mighta loosened things up enough to let the park brake back off some, but not enogh to stop dragging.
    A quick chec for dragging is to lift the rear and try and spin the offending wheel, see how much effort it takes, it should take some but you shouldnt have to strain either.
    Check the P brake adjustment too.
