Hi All

2000 Ranger, 4x4, Auto.

Bought the truck a few month's ago.
Suddenly the brakes seem to be very touchy, they kinda grab a little.
Last month I inspected all 4 and all looked ok. The only thing I actually did was clean the rear brakes and that seemed to help some, however the touchiness is back again.
Today I re-inspected both front and rear brakes, all 4 look ok.
Plenty of life left on the pads and shoes.
No obvious visual reason.

Anyone dealt with something like this before?

Thanks
Bill

Need more info to help diagnose this. Are the brakes touchy at certain speeds? Can you feel which brakes are grabbing? Have you messed with your e-brake lately? I would start with pulling the calipers and making sure the slide pins are lubed properly.
