You might not need to replace the calipers, but pads and rotors will need to be changed, if it was metal to metal. You would open up the bleeder screws on the calipers, and use a big C-clamp to force the pistons back into the caliper. Then remember to close the bleeders. The rotors come off after removing the calipers, and if not, then the wheel bearings will have to be taken apart, and checked, cleaned and repacked before reassembly.

If the truck has disc brakes on the rear then the park brake shoes are located inside the rear rotors. You have to remove the brake calipers, pads and rotors to access them

Could have either on the rear. Both were an option.

You will need to remove the tire and wheel from your 2005 Dodge Durango. Remove the brake pad Springs and calipers. Tap the rotors with a hammer to loosen them. Slide the rotors off. Reverse the process to install the new rotors and brake pads.

Remove brake caliper and caliper frame. Rotors are now free.
