anyone elses truck eat brake calipers?

Just like the title says anyone else with this issue? Within the last 15k miles my truck seized 3 out of the 4 brake calipers (2 rear 1 front). The slides are all free its the calipers I'm having problems with them sticking. Any input as to why it eats calipers all within 15k miles? Truck currently has 94k miles. Thanks!

Has anyone had luck with the caliper rebuild kits? I'm debating about just refreshing the calipers instead of replacing the entire assemblies on my e350.

I have a 2000 F250 I've owned it for 4 years and I've put three calipers on it two front and one rear. I also own a 2002 F250 I've had it a year now and replaced three on it two rear and one front. I would have to admit the achilles heel for the super duty is the brake calipers.

Maybe I am doing something wrong. Between two different Superduties and a combined 260k miles I have never changed a caliper.

I have heard it is a common problem but I don't know why?

I had my left rear freeze up last year at 80k. All the others are original.

The 05's and up have fewer issues than the earlier parts.
