thanks for the help ... shouldn't be plug wires, the darn engine blew at 93,000 miles (not even 2 years ago) and I had a new factory ford motor installed with new plugs and wires, but I'm sure the same old module packs were put back on. any clue how much new module packs will cost me?

My curiosity is raging! How have things gone with the 1993 Explorer brake system?
#14 of 16 Brake Problems With 1993 4X4 Explorer

I am the person that originally posted this problem. I have just resolved the predescribed problem.
I made two changes, and the problem was alleviated. Unfortunately I don't know if one or both changes eliminated the problem.
When I purchased the rebuilt calipers from NAPA, they came with a package of Silicone based lubricant for the slider grooves and retainer clips. It's consistancy was similar to Vaseline. The kit also came with new retainer clips that are two pieces of metal bonded together with rubber. I cleaned off the lubricant and replaced it with Molybdenum based caliper slide grease which has a thinner consistancy, and reused the old retainer clips, whose rubber had been softened a little over time, and that were not as tight in the groove. Voila !!!! Problem solved.The
brakes work great, and they no longer get HOT !
THANKS FOR EVERYONES HELP AND SUGGESTIONS.
