Sounds familiar.......I have the exact same setup, and a mini subframe kit. Right caliper works good, left hangs and brakes squeal when driven for a distance. After the glaze is worn off they aren't as loud, but when I leave from a stop you can hear them until they eventually back off enough.

My wheel bearings were loose at first, but even after that was taken care of they still aren't working right.

I'm thinking the caliper is binding slightly. I have other issues at the moment with my setup that need to be addressed before I even get to the brakes.

are these the oversize s/10 calipers by any chance??????is the brass fitting going into the left brake hose from the master plumbed strait into the hose leading to the caliper? or is the line from the master plumbed to feed the left caliper with the fluid makeing a 90 degree turn from the brass fitting??it makes a differance
