Need Opinions - Brake Problems
 
I currently drive a 2009 Dodge Ram 1500 Crew Cab with the 5.7 Hemi. It has around 61,000 miles on it. I bought it in March with 55,000 miles. Anyways, its only happened three times since I got it, but it will start to "pull" to the left. Essentially the front, drivers side brake is sticking. This happens when I'm driving through an area where I may have had to use my brake a fair amount. The thing is, the brake eventually will stop sticking without me doing anything to it. So I initially thought it was the caliper, but I am confused why it has only done this 3 times. Wouldn't if the caliper was failing, it would just fail?

Any opinions are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

not always. sounds like when it gets hot it starts sticking. you can try going for a short drive and use your brakes a lot or ride the brakes a little if it does it then you know it will need a new caliper.

pull your caliper off and open the rubber gromit and spray some wd40 in there.. it might have some really bad dried up grease or crud .... if not then ^^^
