I have a 1990 GMC Sierra 1500 v6 and my caliper
on the right passenger side doesn't want to release  
which causes the brakes to wear out faster I just
switched out the rotor caliper and brakes...... I also
checked the brake lines and they look good I would
really appreciate some feedback on this

It would be the brake line hose running to the caliper. They break down internally and cause blockage. Would be wise to replace them on both sides.
