Brakes hot

i have a 2006 chevy silverado after i drive a while both front brakes get to hot to touch but the rear brakes are fine. it dose not do it all the time.

It is perfectly normal for your brakes to be to hot to touch.

I strongly recommend that you get this looked at. You may have dragging front calipers, and this could lead to overheating and brake failure. A tech can tell visually. Overheating will cause glazing and discoloration of the rotors, and often sticking causes uneven wear on the pads.
