Caliper sticking

Hope you guys can help me on this, About two weeks ago my ABS light came on. no major issues other than the light being on so i just brushed it off now in the mean time I had my truck leveled, I put 35s on, and I also put brake dust shields on my wheels. A day after that work was done my Right front Caliper got stuck so I limped home aprox 1 mile and when i got out of my truck the brakes were Cherry red and smoking so I brought it to the dealership the next day. they said the ABS light was becasue of a bad wheel speed sensor so the replaced that under warenty and they said i needed brakes all the way around to the tune of $1980.00 My truck has 46k miles. I respectfully declined and the next day I did the front brakes myself, New rotors, calipers and pads. on both sides. I drove the truck for a day aprox 20 miles and all went fine the next day my Right front caliper got stuck again What gives?? Can anyone point me in the right Direction
Thanks Jim

This might be a good place to start:
Welcome to guzzle's Front Caliper Slide Pin Upgrade Web

However, if it's definitely the caliper sticking, I would assume it's time for a rebuild or replacement. I had to replace all 4 of the calipers on my Subaru last summer.. PIA but got it done!

I guess what I was getting at is can you tell if it's the caliper pistons, or the slide? Were the brakes bled correctly? (Rear Right, Rear Left, Front Right, Front Left?)

sounds like to me you have a bad brake hose.the way to check it is get the brake hot and jack up the truck try turning the tire by hand if it doesnt move open the brake bleeder if the tire moves its the hose.thats only my opinion i could be wrong.
