Question about 1997 Pontiac Grand Am
Calipers float on bushings. These are round cylindrical parts, that resemble a thick tube. The caliper mounting bolts go through them, and the caliper slides back, and forth on these bushings.
Sometimes these bushings are worn to one side, and does not allow the caliper to slide.
Most of the time it's a sticking caliper piston, for this type of problem.
The easiest solution is to simply replace the caliper.
