4.0l sahara Lube up the sliding bolts with the proper lube. It's a floating caliper so they need to be well lubed.

Triple88a When it sticks, kick the brake pedal to see if it unsticks. Also check the pads.. are they worn crooked? Does the caliper move freely in and out on the bolts?

right on, only works if you can check it while it is acting up, otherwise do both, they're both fairly inexpensive, and common to fail eventually.

4Jeepn I would say replace the caliper.. fairly cheap to replace. Could also just need cleaned. Might have mud or road crap in the piston area.
