And the hammer idea sounds a little dangerous. Also I wouldnt replace a caliper unless I had to. As long as the piston moves freely you should be ok. "just replacing it" is pricey. Also fords oem parts are all you should be using unless you have a purpose for changing to aftermarket. Fords quality far surpasses most after market brands. Our pads I believe are mad in Italy I found out today. Not sure if its all pads but at least on the escapes they are.
It's not "just replace it", it's replace it due to the symptoms that they could wind up chasing for months. A sticking caliper can also develop enough persistent heat to damage other pieces of the hub assembly. The OEM calipers are NOT superior to aftermarket rebuilds in this case, as the aftermarket calipers have stainless pucks to replace Ford's OEM ceramic.
