Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you.. Ok what I want you to do is when it locks up instead of waiting for it to release on it's own crack the fitting at the caliper and see if it releases rt away. if it doesn't then it's the caliper if does it will be up stream. Do you have anti lock brakes
