I had the exact thing happen! First time my doors come off this year and this breaks.... Parts will be here Tuesday... I guess I put some miles on my jk

I had the same thing happen a few years ago. I only replaced the one. No problems

UnlimitedLJ04 when you replace the calipers, look for divot/grooves in the knuckle. common problem with TJ/ZJ/XJ series due to a design flaw.

kfdjason7620 Sounds like a classic caliper freeze up. They are fairly cheap and easy to change
