It sounds like either a frozen caliper or bad slider pins.......

Only similar part number that I could find was the Wagner severe duty brake pad set from Advance Auto Parts: part number SX804...

Wagner lists their pads as part number MX804 for the front and QC627 for the rear. And the rest of the manufacturer's I found had part numbers ending with "804" for the fronts and "627" for the rears. So it seems like your front are OK, but I'd check the rears.

Do you see excessive brake dust ? Does it happen only one wheel ? I had a issue once where I could easily notice excessive brake dust on one of the front wheels and also that the brake pads on that wheel were much thinner. It turned out to be a stuck slider pin.
