Re: driv side front brakes drag?
There is nothing wrong with your caliper, I'd bet you money on it.
The problem is the pad is really worn down, causing the piston to overextend itself, where it gets into the protective rubber boot and doesn't like to release.
The metallic squealing you're hearing is the audible indicator telling you to replace the pads.
I have had this happen many times on various vehicles, and replacing the pads has always fixed the "problem".
