2105 limited rear brakes

I have a 15 limited and the passenger side rear caliper seems to lock up and heat up. It never seems to fully release and wears the pad and rotor down in no time. None of the other calipers do this. Any ideas ??

Seized slide pins, sticking caliper or faulty flex hose?

On mine, the caliper bracket wasn't machined correctly and had a taper to it. As the pads wore, the pad backing plate would wedge into the bracket causing it to drag, heat up and score the rotor. After burning 2 rotors i figured it out and replaced the caliper.
