Brakes caliper sticking

Truck had the right front caliper stick on me on a 20 mile trip. I thought the right front tire was going flat on me but it wasn't. Got home and rotor was purple. Ford fixed it with new rotor and new pads on the front. Truck only had 26k on it then. I'm up to 30k now. I drive almost 4k a month. Any one else having brake problems?

My right front seized and I had to replace it

Best advise, rotate your tires every other oil change (or 10k) and spray lube on the sliders when you've got the tire off. Its what I've started doing

Ohh. And welcome to the org

these pads seize in the bracket like nothing else i've ever seen. sometimes you get a bad caliper or a pin froze but most of the times that's not the case

every set i do i take a sharp square file and meticulously file all the rust out the caliper bracket(where the pad slides). a lot of people aren't doing this and that is the best way to keep them from hanging up.
