My caliper started to freeze up i replaced it and the
rotor thinking it was warped it got hot but since the
replacement it does nothing but bounce when your
rolling slow it feels like it got a wheel thats bent in
half or just a big bubble in the tire

did you do both sides ? that's an old vehicle you might want to replace all you can that needs it


Jack up the front end. Turn each front wheel by hand and see if it grabs at a certain point. Now check the tires and make sure the belt inside the tire is not damage causing a flat spot. Maybe rotate the tires from front to back and see if there is a difference.
