On my 2006 F350 single wheel my brake calipers keep sticking and over heating. I have replaced all 4 at different times and now a few months later the left side front and rear are both sticking again.

Few questions first. Are you doing the work or is a shop doing it? When you change pads are you also changing calipers? How many miles on truck, calipers and since last pad change. What part of the country are you in.

You didn't say what you replaced. A common cause is the caliper slide pins sticking. If you just replace pads, and leave the slide pins as in, you'll just have the same problem. Improper grease (petroleum based) on the slide pins can cause issues.

You do know that the rubber hoses fail over time. The will let fluid into the caliper but there isn't enough pressure to release the brakes. it's a very common problem.
