Check the caliper slide pins first before assuming a sticking caliper. The slide pins if not lubricated well will cause the caliper to not return and cause the effect of a stuck caliper

I had the same problem about a month ago. My problem was a stuck slide pin. Easy fix.

If the pin is rusty, just sand it lightly and put brake grease on it. Check the rubber boot and replace it if it failed.

I had that happen to me earlier this (on my 99 gt before I sold it of course). Was very cheap. Cost me 149$ for parts and took about 1 hour to do. I had a really rusted bolt that was pain in the ***, but it is really straight forward. Check online; there are some great write ups. I'd replace both front calipers if you can fork the money, but if not just make sure your pads don't need replacing before you take it apart. Otherwise, it might be worth it to get some fresh pads. Re install everything and do a quick brake bleeding .
