Right front break

I have been changing the right break on my 2011 Dakota every 7 to 10 k miles, I have talked to several people and they are having the same problem, last time I took it to the dealer and they didnt fix the problem.

When you say 'they didn't fix the problem' do you mean they couldn't work it out, had no idea what was going on or what?

Are you having wheel-locking problems under brakes, pulling to one side or anything?

One thing that causes this is that the lining of the flexible line breaks up and creates, effectively, a one-way valve in the line which prevents the pads from knocking back properly.

The other possibility is that the caliper and piston are sticking due to rust and other issues...

I think you should pull the caliper and rebuild it, that shouldn't cost much and will give you a better idea.

Or even 'work' the caliper. Take the pads out and put some old and worn ones in, then squeeze the caliper wide open and pump it closed several times to make sure it runs freely. When the piston is at the closed extreme (ie. as far out of the caliper as it comes with worn pads in there) clean it up a bit and put some silicon oil on it.

The last time it was done by the dealer they put new rotors and calipers and the right front still did it.

Then the flexible hose will be the best suspect...
