Brake/Caliper Problem

I have a 95 eagle talon that the front brake or caliper stick and locks up on the driver side. I've replaced the caliper and it's still doing the same thing. Any suggestions..

Might want to gamble and replace the brake hose on that side. When they fail internally it will cause the fluid pressure to be retained in the caliper after stopping.

Did the Talons offer ABS?

95 Talon is Eclipse, and we have one sitting in garage now.
I'd say, remove brake line from the caliper and master - sorry, I know, it is VERY crammed under the hood - and blow it with compressed air. Lines are very small diameter inside, impurities can clogg them fast. Also, chance is it's bent/kincked somewhere... Lines are not that expensive to replace, just bleed the system well after.
How is the opposite side rear caliper doing? no problems? Cuz if both of them have sickness, it's your master.
