Default 94 brake problem

Hey Guys, so I am having a problem with my brakes, the problem being that they appear to be sticking and getting so hot that they start to smoke. Its pulling to the right and I can definately tell that my truck is struggling to get up to speed.

This seems kinda serious to me and I am wondering if you guys think that it is the calipers? It is still the calipers that have the pins holding them on. I have looked at the pistons holding the pads on and they seem a bit chipped up.

I just changed the timing belt, and it is in time and everything was fine for a few weeks until this happened.

So how hard would this be to change myself if indeed it is the calipers.

Um if you guys need any more information that might help just ask. Thanks

Just wanted to give an update, replaced the calipers and the rubber brake line, no problems bleeding them other than not realizing that air was getting sucked through the threads when using the vacuum pump. I power bled it after using the vacuum pump and the brakes are working great again.
