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 have a 2001 with AWAL. Replaced calipers & both flexs. My fronts are dragging as well. Did the proper bleed. It helped, but the damn things still drag whenever they feel like. I’m convinced that it’s contaminated in the ABS valve body and or the proportioning valve. Front’s are excessively hot and dragging. Rear seem hot but normal…
No brake light or codes.
