    hey everyone,
    So before i got out of school i noticed that my front tires would not turn at all when i had the front end picked up. it took all my strength to turn them. well i got done with college on thursday. i had to drive 300 miles home with them like that and tonight i jacked my front end up and found that i couldn't turn my tires at all no matter how hard i tried. I even thew a bar on there and couldnt spin them. well i tore them apart and it turns out that BOTH of my calipers are froze up full of rust and mud.... they couldnt happen just one at a time, they had to both freeze at the same time. so now im working on getting them to work and trying to avoid buying new ones but i know eventually ill have too. i just need to get back to work so i can get some money..
    just thought i would share haha.

    You drove 300 miles like that without any problems? No smoke....no burning smell...??

    You're probably gonna need some rotors and check your bearings also.

    Good Luck
