My right front brake locks up when the brakes are applied

(1990 Chevrolet 2500 Pickup)
in Forest City, IA on December 23, 2014
I've checked the front brakes and the pads and rotors appear to be ok. plenty of pad left, and no grooves in the rotor. But sometimes when the brakes are applied, it sounds like it's metal on metal ( a terrible grinding sound).

Check the brake hose and brake caliper.
