Got out of the truck yesterday and noticed a large amount of heat as I walked past the rear wheel...

Tyre and rim warm...not good...

Piston is seized in caliper, have to replace (seal damaged and let water/dirt in).

Local parts guys can get it in...on Monday, bugga...gotta drive the missus car all weekend...

Are you going to overhaul BOTH rear calipers ? Crazy not to.
Plenty of rubber grease when assembling.
New pads while you're at it.
Then no worries for at least another 80,000km.

Do it once - do it well - build a better Australia. (sign on the workshop wall where I did my trade)

Know what you mean - been driving the wife's MX5 (she borrowed the troll). So close to the road I've got gravel rash on my arse.
