Caliper pouring out fluid....

Last few days brakes have been making a slight screeching noise..I hadn't driven it in a few weeks so u figured it was just a lil rusty (I live on a beach town island so lots of salt air).
Today I got to take a look and now the petal Is going far down to the floor, barely stoping, etc...the rear passanger side caliper is leaking fluid pretty good but it's not coming from anywhere near the line or where the line comes into the caliper, it seems to just be pouring out of the caliper itself...anyone have any suggestions on what to do first? What am ilooking for in determining if the caliper needs to be replaced or if it can be fixed?

'00 f350 7.3 xlt 4x4

i would go to say a parts site and enter both and see what part numbers you get ,,

you can also get rebuild kits ,, but the bore has to be good and if the piston is cracked I don't know how much $ that adds or if the rebuild kit's come with it?

also there are some crush washers that are best replaced and don't forget to lube the slider ,, the Loaded caliper from AZ comes with all that ..and check the pad to make sure it didn't get contaminated with fluid
