Re: Front brakes>>>>>>>>>>
Check your caliper slide pins. I bet they are rusted in place and causing the caliper to hang. If you can get the pins out, you'll need to get new ones and lube them with high temp synthetic brake grease at least twice a year since you live in a snow area.
If the pins look good, check your caliper, the pistons could be hanging. You could rebuild the caliper but since calipers are pretty inexpensive, it will probably easier to just get a new one.
My money is on seized pins though.
