Drivers side front brake stuck dragging on disk overheating pads, disk, hub... New pads, new disks, new caliper pins (lubed w/high pressure grease) paid special attention to fit and casting flash concerning the pads. The caliper pins showed very little corrosion & had obviously been replaced at some point.
I noticed my pads were wearing unevenly on one side. I found one of the caliper pins was stuck and corroded. I finally got it loose, cleaned it up with a wire wheel, and packed it with grease under the rubber boot. Problem solved, the caliper moved freely again. I did the same thing to the other pins.
