They're £185 from my stealer and I can only find one reputable looking internet company at £80 each, but I have no experience of them (jeepspares.com)
just replace the sticking one.
if its a sliding caliper it may just need the sliders greasing.
while its off replace the flexi hose too, thay can collapse internally and make a oneway valve which causes your symptoms.
