Most common cause is stiking or ceased pistons on the calipers, usually caused by a worn/perished seal letting water in. The solution would be to replace or overhaul the calipers. Hope that helps.

Why do my front brakes wear out quicker than rear brakes on my 1999 Dodge Ram 1500?

It could be that the rear brakes are not functioning properly; leading to the front brakes having to compensate. That is, if the front ones are going out much quicker than the rear. I believe that the front ones just naturally wear faster than the rear ones On a light truck the front brakes will do up to 75% of the braking.
