Brake problems need advice

Hey guys/gals, I'm having some issues with my 07 jk. A few weeks ago my right front started pulling pretty hard one day on the way to the beach. It slacked off a few days later but within the last couple weeks it's been progressively worse. I've tried looking up the symptoms but I'm hoping y'all can help. Here's what's goin on... I've pulled the wheel off and the caliper is working freely but when I apply the brake it locks up and won't release. After a 25 minute drive the wheel is so hot you can't touch it. Therefore I need to get it fixed like yesterday! What's going on? Where should I go to get it fixed if its something I can't do in my garage? (Near tampa area) thanks!

I would say you probably need new calipers. I had a similar experience in a Bronco II I used to own. I would suggest replacing both at the same time.

That seems to be the drift. I'm running to get new calipers tonight so hopefully that fixes the problem. Thanks!
