Rear wheel drive or front wheel drive?

Hi, Worst case senario is a frozen wheel bearing, BUT mostlikely is a brake problem IE, A frozen caliper and or parking brake cable,,The only way to find out is get the wheel off to inspect the above mentioned parts,,,GOOD LUCK...Clay..

The car was sitting less than a day. I drive the car everyday.

My SE has all wheel disc brakes.hmm were they only on pre-98s? I've neaver heard/seen a non-svt with 4 disc's stock. Learn something new every day.

the 'SE' was top-of-the line back in 96 so probably only they came with them, this summer my car will be a exact copy of an SE except one major mod, atx zetec :lol:

All of the pre98 SE's had them for sure. After 98, things got a little goofy but yes, some non svts did receive 4 wheel discs.

well shit I might as well go back and get the rear discs off the SE I got my lip spoiler off of, it had stealies on it so I never looked at the brakes.

instead of paying out the ass for svt rear brakes.
