    evertime i get in my car after driving for about 5 min the brakes start to stick. i know they are only the front, maybe just the passenger side. whike driving if i kcik the shit out of the brake pedal most of the time it goes away. when i shut the car off for 5 min it goes away for alittle while. im not sure what it could be and i dont want to change the caliper and find out its not the problem. i bought the car with a rear disc conversion, 40/40 prop vale and 15/16 master cylinder. lmk if you have and ideas what it could be. thanks, Dale

    EDIT: found the problem. the stock brake booster was left. http://www.gutterslide.com/fourthgenhatch_mirror/tegmp.html

    Adjust your pedal height from the inside of your car, my crx did the same thing, problem solved.
