Urgent! brakes locking up intermittently and switches sides!

I had all 4 calipers replaced under warranty. Now the brakes in the back keep locking up. One day its the driver's side, next day the passenger side. These brakes suck!!!! Anyone have this problem?

Happened to me once. Rear/Driver side caliper locked up. Bought a remanufactured one from Advance Auto Parts. I replaced it, no problems since and works like new. I really don't know why you still have problems after replaced all of them, if still under warranty better take it to the dealer for a deep inspection.

they are brand new OEM all of them. No way it switches from one side to the next and then fine again. I think its the hoses. I will replace them tomorrow and let you guys know.

Well i changed the rear brake lines and it seemed fine for a couple of days, until now. Got home from and the right rear is smoking hot again. Can barely touch the wheel! Here is a list of everything that has been done:

Brand new calipers on all four corners, rear brake pads and rotors, rear brake lines. These are all OEM parts.

The right rear continues to lock up intermittently. I'm lost!!

Maybe the steel line (not the rubber one) is clogged with some foreign material. Disconnect the steel line from both sides and apply air pressure in hopes to unclog the line. (just a guess)

Damn! I can't help you any further, I'm clueless too. I hope someone else chimes in. Keep us informed.

I replaced all the lines in the back metal and flex up to the frame connection up by the spare tire.

How long ago was the rear calipers replaced? The rears are notorious for locking up when not used. I don't know the whole story, but in 8,000 mile in owning mine over 3 years I have replaced the rear and the front calipers. Sitting in the garage especially in the north is hard as he11 on the brakes of these. That's my two pennies.

Replaced about 6 months ago, and we lubed up the pins with anti-seize as well.

Update, I took off the wheel and unscrewed the bolts that hold the pins in place. I moved them both back and forth with zero effort. I tapped the caliper with a hammer a few times and put the wheel back on. Still not sure what is going on
