I have a question for everyone. It seems my rear caliper on my 2003 ZTS has "frozen" up on me with this -15 degree weather we are having in Denver. This did this to me before on my passenger side rear and I had to replace the caliper, and now this has happened to my drivers side rear. It only happens in cold weather. Has anyone else had this problem? Is my only option to replace the caliper?
THANKS!
