Question about 2005 Chevrolet Malibu Maxx
I have had brake pads replaced but one caliper is frozen up and won`t release. This causes the whole car to shake and eventually the back tires lock up. I have to get off the road until it cools and then it will go again.

Replace that caliper! and check if that hose to it is good as well by bleeding the system afterwards
sometimes, also, check to see if the parking brake mechanism on both sides are working too because you said BOTH rear wheels are locking up
now you'll either need to scuff up the new pads and rotors to "deglaze" them after you repair the broken caliper
