No there is no adjustment on front calipers. If they do not spin freely, the piston on caliper is seizing or the rubber (flex) brake hose is collapsing & holding pressure.

Jack that side up support it with jack stands or blocks, take off tire, take brake calipar off, brake calipar braket, take off rotor, take off axel hub nut, and the 3 bolts that hold the hub assembly on, then bang it off with a good hammer. Installation is just reverse.

I need to replace a cracked rubber seal around my brake cylinder in my right front rotor.Does this seal come out easy and do I need special tools to seal the O ring back in.Its a 2000 grand am se

Brake cylinders are for back brakes that are the brake drum type, if your talking about the rubber seal around the piston in the brake calipar, they don't come out easy, have to unscrew bleeder valve and use compressed air to blow it out, and if you don't get things seated right when you put it back in, you'll have more problems. Better off just to replace calipar.
