Several possibilities; brake system corrosion, contaminated brake fluid, faulty caliper piston, collapsed hydraulic hose.

How many miles since the last brake fluid replacement / exchange? When replacing any brake components, always replace both sides at the same time = both front calipers, both front hoses, etc.

Try these on-line parts resources; www.autopartsanything.com; www.partsgeek.com; www.Rockauto.com, www.stockwiseauto.com - to list only a few.

In fact, they (RockAuto) list the replacement front hydraulic brake hoses from around $3.00, and the front brake calipers from around $19.00 each for your vehicle.
