Its a 91 honda civic lx. did a brake job on the front brakes. changed rotors, calipers, pads, mastercylinder is was leakingand brake booster it was bleeding down and leaking right brake hose and greased the slides. when i 1st drive it the brakes are great after about 5-7 miles the right front brake starts to drag and get worse.

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?

Did you clean out all the old grease in the slidepins? Do they seem to be moving freely?
