Right front caliper?

My right front caliper seems to be hanging up at times.
I say this cause I notice that it pulls to the right for a bit then seems to release and it steers normal and doesn't pull. Any ideas

its very possible. Just replaced my right front caliper. It was not pulling but noticed that it had excessive dusting compared to the left front. Removed the caliper pads where worn more on he right side and caliper was sticking very hard to turn in with a C clamp. replace the caliper all is well.

Had the rear left drag on me last year. I didn't notice anything while driving but it was getting hotter than the other three. Pulled the caliper and found a cracked piston which caused the pad to contact the rotor at an angle. The pad was tapered real bad. Replaced the caliper and no problems since - with that wheel at least.

Your slide pins or piston might be seizing up and not allowing the caliper to release freely.
