Caliper hanging

2007 Chevy Tahoe Ltz.

My front passengerís side caliper is hanging up - Iím getting way more brake dust on that side and the rotor is always very hot when I arrive someplace.

Simple fix, right? Unfortunately not. All my bleeder screws are frozen on the calipers (even the rears). So, in order to properly bleed the system, Iím thinking I need 4 new calipers, is that correct (not just the 2front ones)?

While Iím at it... rotors/pads too... so itís going to be a pricey endeavor?

It could be a partially frozen or stuck proportioning valve. Although, that seems unlikely for just an 11 year old truck.

For the bleeder valves did your try some BP blaster on them for a couple of days.

You actually only have to bleed the caliper you change. As long as the master Cyl doesn’t loose all the fluid.

Change the hose too while your there.

You could also just have a caliper slide stuck or a brake pad stuck on its slides, I see this more than calipers

I would check to make sure the slides are greased. I recently found where one of mine weren't and it fixed the issue.
