    Pass side caliper. It's probably not working. AFter that, there's a ew other things to check, but I'll leave that to the experts.

    Could be several issues including but not limited to:
    Stuck caliper (stays applied)
    Frozen caliper (won't apply)
    Worn out rubber line (bulging)
    Bad rotor
    Bad pads
    Frozen caliper bolt/slide C10/D44
    Stuck Caliper D60 (where it "slides" along the backing plate)
    Oil/debris soaked pads.
    Pinched hard line
    Crap in Prop valve (not that likely, but.....)
