Just recently did all the brakes, rear works fine, left front works fine, but right front does not lock up like the right does. Had the caliper apart a couple times, all looks good. Took the shoe off and freed it up as the piston was seized. The brake works, but the right will lock up and the left will continue to spin eventually squeaking to a stop. I'm looking for recommendations for what to specifically look at.

Thanks for helping the noob.

Have you tried bleeding that side and are the pads good?

I did, but I think I did it wrong. I do not have a bleeder valve gun thingy. So I opened the valve and fluid came out, then I tightened it, but Im pretty sure when I bleed it open like that it sucked air back in. How do you bleed it without the gun?

I always just bleed them by pumping up the brake lever and holding it down while loosening the bleeder screw. Tighten the bleeder screw back up before releasing the lever. Bleed each wheel until all the air is out. Make sure you don't let the reservoir get even close to being empty or air will get back in the system.

helmut told you right..keep an eye on the brake master cylinder for low fluid.
