The front brakes were making a lot of noise so. We replaced front brakes were okay for two days then we replaced the calipers after two days. The right brakes get very very hot. What to do next? The left is hot but not as much as the right

Are the brakes dragging? If you stop on a slight incline, shift to neutral, and release the brakes, does the car creep downhill on its own? If not, place a block about 6 inches downhill from one tire, then loosen the steel lines at the master cylinder. If they release, suspect the brake fluid is contaminated with a petroleum product. If they do not release, open the bleeder screws on the calipers. If that lets them release, suspect the rubber flex hoses.
