Usually it's the rear calipers that go, but yes, even front ones seize as well. Calipers seize but also flex lines collapse as well. I always do calipers in pairs, if one has seized what are the chances that the other one should seize soon as well, and the money you invested into the truck due to the right side seizing you will have to invest into the truck AGAIN because the left side has now seized.
If it was my truck I would do C.P.R.
Calipers, Pads and Rotors (machine or new)
I don't know what else to tell you fella other than moving parts seize and a caliper is a piston in a bore that may/can seize over time.
And checking for the collapsed brake line, i usually crack the bleader screws and try to push the caliper back (if suspecting a seized caliper). If the caliper now pushes back, its a flex line, if it's still seized well then....
