Brake Issue

About 3 or 4 weeks ago I had what I thought was my drivers side rear parking brake lock up on me. When I got home after driving around town it was very hot and had a decent amount of smoke coming off it. After letting it cool I jacked up the back end and beat it with a dead blow hammer which seemed to work as the tire moved freely. Then last night when I got home and hopped out of the truck I could instantly smell hot brakes and the rotor was glowing. Thinking about it over the last few months every once in a while I've noticed the same smell of burnt brakes, it was just never that bad and I didn't think much of it. So it sounds like this is not a new issue and it maybe getting worse.Does it sound like my brake caliper on that corner is going bad? If so does anyone know about how much a replacement is?

Caliper is definitely hanging up. Reman calipers aren't very expensive.

I used napa all 4 corners. They have lifetime warranty and we all know in areas of heavy salt use they never last long. I plow and tow with truck always strong braking.

I want in on this thread because just today I was running some errands and when I was dropping my buddy off, I noticed a terrible (burning brake) smell.....I asked if that smell was just outside or if it was coming from my truck? It was also my rear right that the smell was coming from, and that wheel was way warmer than the others...I wonder how long this has been going on for and if this is causing my sh*tty fuel mileage. I don't think it's my park brake, how do you tell for sure if it's the calliper or e-brake?

The rotor would probably be hot i would think.

Take it apart and look at it. You'll know real quick

It only just started dragging slightly...not to the point to where I could really feel it slowing me down or it wasn't to the point of smoking but it all felt hot to the touch (calliper and rotor) and had the burning smell

I guess it's going up on the jack stands and I'll have to have a looky-loo
