Rear breaks problem or not?

Just paid 180 for a rear drivers side calliper changed and a set of rear pads, calliper was seized and binding like a gud'en, he rang me to tell me passenger side was Fine but pads needed as the driver side ones had cracked due to being stuck on and still driven (they were as he showed me) anyway I get it home and spit on back disk to check they were no longer rubbing (getting hot) and all is well but when I spit on passenger disk it sizzles as if now that one is sticking... Surely not one straight after another??? Please tell me this could be just the pads bedding in??
Any ideas guys???

Re: Rear breaks problem or not?

Most likely the new pads are sticking in the callipers,
take it back they should sort it.

Who would design a vehicle that falls over when you stop?

If you find a fix for your problem please let us know it will help others.
