Right front passenger rotor/rim overheating.

2001 Ford Ranger Edge, 2WD; replaced rotors, calipers, pads, and front wheel bearings.

Wheel bearing was too tight causing a noise in the front right passenger wheel. Adjusted it and the noise went away.

So I get home from my drive and I smell burning. (Like it was before when my caliper seized)

I go to the front passenger wheel and its hot as hell!! What the F!

I have no idea what the issue is now. Calipers are new and were bled, and the pads are of good quality.

Any help is appreciated.

Assuming the caliper is free to slide:

Check/replace the flex line on the caliper.
These can collapse internally and will allow fluid to flow in but not flow back, so prevent the caliper from fully releasing.
