Sticking caliper

It may be a sticking caliper, next time it does it jack the wheel up and see if it is hard to spin. If so check to be sure the pressure is releasing from the caliper, if it is then either rebuild or replace the caliper. If pressure is not releasing it could be a problem with clogged line.

Well to check if pressure is releasing stick a small clear line over the bleader (keep air from getting back in) crock the bleader open and if fluid soots ou very hard or of the wheel frees up then its a line or pressure problem somewhere. If wheel stays locked remove the caliper and if still locked then suspect the parking brake (unlikely if you didnt adjust it but possible) If you give me the make and model of your truck i can scan and email the chiltons instructions. otherwise if you dont have this resolved by next weekend I will go pull the back rotor off my truck and take pics and show you how to do everything step by step
