After noticing excessive brake dust on the front right wheel, I checked for frozen caliper by rotating front wheels while raising the car on jack. The front wheel did not move freely while the other one did. So I changed the caliper on that side and also replaced brakes and rotors on both front wheels. Now both wheels rotated freely while on jack stands after changing the front right caliper. But the front right rotor was still noticeably hotter than the other side after driving a few miles. So i changed the rubber brake hose as well. I made sure that the sliding bolts/pins are well lubricated. But the right rotor is still hotter after driving a few miles. It's nowhere as bad as it was before replacing the caliper, but I am afraid it may eventually worsen. What could be the cause of this ? Any advice/inputs is highly appreciated.

I just replaced the right front caliper on my '02 on Monday. It was sticking too. I'll probably replace the left one in a week or two.
