brake dragging. Late 99 7.3 4x4

my front left brake started dragging the other day. Its not bad at all I could still turn the hub by hand, but its making the truck pull to the left and needs to be fixed. I have had a power steering line leaking for some time throwing fluid all over the frame and everything in the front left wheel well, thinking this could be the cause of the brake issue, after the brake started dragging I finally took the inner fender out and found the bad line and pulled it along with the caliper, would a new or reman caliper and fluid flush be all that's needed to fix? I tried to pull the pistons out and ended up cracking one of them, looks to be some sort of ceriamic material? thanks

Check out Guzzle's PS page via google. The slide pins on the calibers tend to freeze and will make your caliber stick. Since you've already damaged your caliber, I'd replace it. They're only made in reman so you wont have the choice of new. Lube the rest of your caliber slide pins to keep from this happening again
