White lithium on the pins, I fought this myself. Your only having the issue on one side. You must grease the pins or the pads will not retract. I took my brakes off twice before finding it. I put it on the pins and the bolts.

Oh, come on...what's wrong with just replacing the old brakes with a whole new setup...

That came from a completely totaled truck? Cheap!

Uh...wait a minute...truck was totaled? Uh, oh.
Wonder how that happened. Maybe the brakes failed.

Yea, I only did that one a couple of times. Back when I was working for nothing bucks an hour. You are right, not the greatest idea.

Been there, done that. On my first car the brakes were completely fucked... I mean both of the calipers had seized and the pads were down to the metal and the rotors were almost worn into the fins. You know, when they stop squeaking followed by a brief period of silence before they start to grind. I was flat broke at the time and I figured since they were already completely fucked I wasn't going to damage the car any further by driving it like that. I did, however, make it a point not to drive during rush hour and to give myself plenty of space (not like that makes it okay or anything). Since I couldn't afford much in the way of gas either it mostly sat in the backyard until my summer job kicked in and I could afford to buy parts for it. Those were the days.

Cadillacdude is right...never cheap out on brakes. Now I always spend the extra money for ceramic pads and decent calipers/wheel cylinders that will last longer than their warranty period.
