FRONT BRAKES WON'T LAST

2003 Pontiac Grand Am • 2.2L 4 cylinder FWD Automatic • 172,000 miles

This car eats front brakes, especially on the passenger side. About every 2 months you have to replace the brake pads and rotors. There were new calipers installed last time also. 2 months and the brakes are shot again. After a week the rotor on the passenger side looked like a washboard. The car stops fine and does not pull to either side or anything, the brakes just won't last. There are no issues with the rear shoe brakes, they work fine and last. I was told by a mechanic possibly a brake line is collapsed somewhere letting the brake fluid get through but not bleed off. Does that sound like the problem or would it be something else?

Check for a sticking caliper or the braek hose is bad and keeping it on. If hose is bad replace both fronts.
