I had a constant grinding coming from front passenger tire. Replaced Caliper and put the worn pads back on for a day, the constant grinding went away. It would still grind while braking,hitting a bump

It sounds like the brake pads are metal to metal, when you turn the flexing of the wheel makes them touch the rotor and grind. This can rarely be caused by a badly worn wheel bearing as well, have both brakes and wheel bearing inspected.

Brakes have locked up after having to hit them hard to avoid a crash. Now they smell and make the car bounce after hitting 45 mph.

sounds like to problems did you actually hit some thing? if not the burnt smell should go away. about the bounce at 45 mph are you sure that it's not a shake and does it go away at 55 mph or different speed? if this is whats happening the front tire is out of balance weight could have fallen off. try this

My left rear tire is locked (won't turn) and now I can't get the tire off to free up the brake.

jack up vehicle and put on stands ,then remove the wheel nuts ,get assistant to hold a plank of wood on wheel and then hit the plank with a 7kg hammer ,the alloy wheel has corroded to the brake disk ,when free put copperslip on the inside of the wheel rim that will stop it corroding up again

E-brake is locking up tires

if rear e-brake locks up then get under car and pull on cable to rear wheels, this should un lock brakes, if the cable is not in a bad state and rusted. if to bad replace rear cables. if it comes loose then oil the cable good at the rear wheels. this may take care of problem.but you may have to take rear tire off to check on the condition of rear brakes also.
