    i just added a air bag suspenstion kit to my 01 f-250 and when takeing the tires off i applied the break and had someone loosen the lugs. i noticed that the back passenger tire still spun when breaks were applied. the back driver side did not!! how do you adjust the back breaks on this truck?

    Since your truck has rear disc brakes, their are no adjustments to make. More than likely the problem is that the caliper is froze up due to corrosion on the slide pins which wont allow the caliper to move in order to squeeze the pads against the rotor. It's a very common problem with the rear disc's on the Super Dutys. You may be able to remove the caliper and free the slide pins up but usually I just end up replacing the entire caliper.
