So...My right front caliper is stuck again 80% stuck. trusted mechanic found it when he was redoing my rear brakes on my '03 xterra with 220k

Now this is flukey because both front calipers were stuck and replaced 13 months ago by the same mechanic. He said that he could replace the parts under warranty and his labor is free since it occurred so recently.

However the right caliper had been replaced 13 months prior to that as well. (these brakes hav elasted me almost 200k w/o a rebuild)
So my right front caliper has frozen 3 x int he past 26 months.

There must be a reason for this. Weather up here is in new england it typical nothing extreme.

Can anyone think of anything that would cause calipers to seize 3 x in 27 months? I dont do any off roading?
The front brakelines were replaced 13 months ago as well and rotor/ pads

Typically, the boot is damaged and/or the wrong lube is being used, or incorrectly applied.
