Always replace brake and suspension parts in pairs, both front or both rears. Frozen calipers usually mean corrosion in the cylinder is causing the piston to stick, which will cause excessive and uneven pad wear as well as uneven braking. Depending on how bad the problem is, it might be possible prepair but replacing both rear calipers is a very good idea.
