97 ranger brake locking up?

I have a 97 ranger 4wd that I bought wrecked 2 years ago. The right front brake locks up. it was a daily driver they guy bought from. It sat for about six months b4 I fixed and got on road. The left rear wheel cylinder was leaking fluid from the line conecting to it. I tightend the line (stopped leak) flushed and bled entire system. Replaced the right front caliper. Still locking up. No abs light. The left rear brake shoes were saturated In fluid. I cleaned them with brake clean. Could that cause the right front to lockup?

Possibly the guide pins are bent or the mounting bracket itself causing the pins not to slide back...You greases the pins right?

No I dont think the back would have anything to do with the front locking up...

You might try replacing the brake hose also, sometimes they collapse on the inside causing the brakes to not fully release.

Check the left frt. caliper it may be stuck causing the right one to do all the work.
