Rear Brakes Overheating

Just replaced rear brake pads on JK with 50k miles. Have driven a few days and is getting hot on passenger side. I pulled caliper, slider pins are clean, greased and moving freely. Any other areas I should check? The old pads on that side were worn slightly more than driver side BTW.
Think it's new caliper time?

Might want to try bleeding it first. Could be some debris or collapsed hose.

Tried bleeding and redoing everything. Going to try a new caliper.
