Continued intermittent dragging of rear disk brakes. Brakes have been replaced several times--dragging continues to this date--8/7/2014. Vehicle has been taken to Ford dealer--can't isolate the problem.

This is the first of four times that I have had to have brake work done on my truck. Three of the times I was told that the calipers had frozen and so calipers pads and (except this last time) rotors had to be replaced. This is absurd for a truck with less than 45,000 miles. Understand this is expensive!! have never had anything like this on any other vehicle. Also, I have experienced the oft talked about "death wobble" a few times on the highway. Was rear brakes in 2010' fronts in 2011' now rears again in 2013.
