When brake calipers locks up, it can be due to the following.
1. Brake hose clogged.
2. Caliper piston jammed.
3. Slider bolts jammed.
The squealing during brake might not be related to the above and is only the pads wearing in.
When the brake pads were replaced, the brake piston and slider bolts should have been inspected and tested for smoothness of travel.
