Local Brake Parts

I admittedly don't know much about fixing my own Jeep unless it has something to do with electrical, but I've been having some issues with my brakes and my buddy said he'll help me out but I'm going to need a place to get the parts. Essentially my brakes got stuck awhile back, got unstuck, and then got stuck again. When I drive the steering wheel will pull to the right pretty lightly, but it's enough to notice. After driving for awhile they'll start smoking, and needless to say I haven't driven it in awhile. But back to my point, I'm in Brampton, Ontario and I'm going to need some local place (or online if it's still reasonable for us Canadians) to get brake parts that isn't going to break the bank. I'm not sure what exactly is going to need to be done or what the damage is but I don't want to be spending all day part hunting (both for his sake and mine). Thanks in advance for anyone that can help. Also, I drive a 2005 TJ Unlimited, and any part recommendations are welcome.

Getting parts should be easy. Any parts dealer should have many options for you.
Your local Jeep specialty shops will also have parts.
For brake parts don't look for the cheapest parts.
Personally I stay away from guaranteed for life brake pads. I find they are hard on the rotors. I'd rather get better rotors & replace the pads more often than replacing the more expensive rotors.

You have a seized caliper. Try taking it apart and lubing up the sliders with brake lube, but chances are the caliper needs to be rebuilt.

Put a list together of a bunch of parts you need (if you need new brakes etc)

then go onto Autozones website and put in a zip code in the USA in niagara falls (I use 14305) and then drive across the border and pickup the parts from their parts store (just make sure they have your stuff in stock)

Duty you pay is only 13% (same as the sales tax here) and all parts are about an average of 1/3 of the price of parts here (i.e if something will cost 90$ here, it will be about $30 there)

I think I paid 30-40 bucks for a caliper
2 summers ago from Napa. Wasn't too bad at all. Damn mud...
