i see alot of bad calipers on these in the rear! so when you get the wheels off and take a look at the pads one side should have alot more wear than the other and that will be the trouble side. when you have the caliper off and the pads off. try depressing the caliper piston and if it don't move open the bleed with presure still applied to the piston and if the piston goes in after you open the bleeder then you have a bad rubber brake hose and if it don't than your caliper is bad. also if the piston goes in from the begging then you may have a defective pad and it wore faster witch may cause the piston to get jammed because it's at it's full excursion.
if you have any more question please ask. good luck

check brake hose where steel clamp is wrapped around it it usually rusts causing it to crush hose if there is no rust visible it will be modulator

There should be two bolts that hold the caliper to the axle assembly. Remove these two bolts and slide the caliper off. At this point check the rotors for abnormal wear or grooves. Depending on how many miles you have on them I would replace them regardless. Before you insert the new pads into the caliper I like to use a C clamp and a piece of flatstock to force the pistons back to their original location. If you don't do this you will not be able to fit the caliper over the rotor. Before installing the caliper if you did buy the new rotors use some brake cleaner to remove any of the cosmoline oil that they are shipped with. Remember to chock your front wheels or use jackstands if you have enough. Good luck!
