Default Front driver side brake draging

Replace the caliper, pads, rotor and hose. Brake still not releasing and draging. Thought I had it fix but the boy drove it and said the brakes where smoking when he stopped. Pulls to that side (duh).

Whats nexts? What could be the problem?

93 model

Steve.

How old is the boy?? LOL

Chances are it could be something to do with something stuck inside the master cylinder, But I'm not completely positive. I don't know brakes all that well.

Seized, or frozen caliper piston? Caliper pins need lube?

I'd try the slides first bud.

But, if that still doesn't get it, lock up the ABS and bleed again.
