Question about Plymouth Voyager
The wheel cylinder has a small return hole that allows fluid to escape back up the line to compensate for the expansion of the fluid when it heats up.
If this hole becomes clogged then when the fluid gets hot it expands and with no where else to go it pushes against the pad causing the brakes to lock up and get even hotter which of course make it get even tighter.
You can remove the caliper and try to clean the little return hole or just replace the caliper.

Whenever you have new brake pads put on it is best to have the rotors cut. Otherwise they can shudder or grab or any number of things. If the vehicle is pulling to one side or another it could be a frozen caliper. Calipers should always be replaced in pairs. As with all brake work, anything done to one side absolutely needs to be done to the other. Always purchase medium grade brake pads and shoes. Premium pads and shoes are almost always too agressive for any rotor to withstand and will generate excessive heat and premature wear. If your brakes seem like they arent releasing it is most likely the calipers.

SOURCE: front brakes heat up and
Chanses are its the calipers that are bad, and the break hoses going from the hard line to the caliper are too, (one or the other) i've had both problems on my wifes durango, changed both calipers twice and last time replaced both break hoses, i have also done the same thing to a friends sebring with the same problem, seams to have cured the breaking problems on both. Best thing to do is replace both calipers and both break hoses, i think it will solve your break issue.
