check your rubber hose...if it feels spongy or limp most likely it's colapsed

A new caliper at rock auto .com runs from 37 to 45 bucks
A new brake hose is from 5 to 15 bucks.
If replacing the hose I suggest replace both fronts since they have same wear on them. Got to bleed lines anyway. The caliper guide pins need grease when changing pads. Sometime they can rust and get sticky causing caliper to stick.

if you have to replace any brake line consider just buying a SS set...best thing i've done for my braking besides good pads

Caliper guide pins? Are those the ones on the black bracket around the caliper? Their sealed?

Google a pic for the caliper guide pin. They have a rubber boot that covers them.
