wheel cylinder.. when they go bad, they start to leak and eventually push 1 of the pistons out and it locks in sideways

accually the backing plates get grooved.. as you can see in the pic the cylinder is all the way depressed so it isnt stuck out.. once they pop out by themselves they usually dont go back into place.. take your pads off and check the backing plate for wear and grooves.. i bet you thats what it is.. i see it all the time.. i usually just fill it with weld and grind them smooth again if you have to take the axle out to get a new backplate on..
