Rear Brake Drag???

Hey guys,
I think I might have the rear passenger side brake dragging. I first noticed it the other day coming home from a short trip, less than 7 miles, the rotor was scorching! I know this because I was spraying the wheel wells out with the hose. This was the only one that was steaming when water hit it. This past weekend we went camping so when we got back from pulling the fiver, there was a lot of brake dust on the wheel. I've had the truck jacked up and doesn't seem to be dragging then. I have about 37000 on it, 08 6.4l, so its not new pads. Any ideas?

My caliper just went out on mine but it blew fluid all over the place and had to replace pads also.

$2xx.xx for the caliper and who knows what install/labor is.
$530.00 was the total with new rear pads.


Now, you just went outside of your warranty, so I would see if they can cut you some slack if it is indeed the caliper.
