Re: right front brake stiking

I have the car on jack stands. brakes drag after a min or so. check calipers and hoses. then if i remove the vacumn line from the brake booster the brakes will release. ?????????

i think that the brake booster that is new, needs to be adjusted. anyone know how to adjust or check to see if it needs to be adjusted?
