Front brakes dragging

2001 Dak 4.7 4x4 SLT: I smoked my front driver's side brake with short city driving. It heated up to the point that I could smell it and pulled very hard to the left. This happened to me a year ago, but that time both fronts smoked! I let them cool, and they were fine since.

The previous owner also had brake issues and the dealer replaced rotors, calipers, and pads...seems to be another issue to be happening. Obviously the calipers are not releasing. Would the booster cause this problem?

i had that prob also on my 98 RT. I just decided to get the 04 dak brakes and hopfully that gremlin doesnt come back. I also replaced the booster before i did the swap and it made it worse,driverside never fully released, also replaced rubber brake lines
