Uh, really, you didn't contribute either, so chill.
But I do agree with the above statement. You have the experience working on the older cars, and the front brakes aren't really any different on this one. Sounds like you have an educated guess of what happened, and that would be my first guess from reading your story. So, take it apart, and see what broke. I'm thinking it might have been one of the slide pins that hold the caliper on, or you might have blown a seal.
So, tear it down, let us know what you find, and we'll help you as we can once we know what we're dealing with.
