560 Sl Eating Front Calipers!

Hello to all!

I am trying to understand Why my SL is eating Calipers.

I replaced them at 86000 miles and now have 106,000 and I am replacing them once again. Last time rebuilt, this time rebuilt!

I am not sure if this is normal but it seems to me that something is not right if I am going thru them that quickly.

What is happening is that the Front Calipers are locking up and this was the same problem I had at 86K.

Now, it is possible that this is standard procedure for the car? I would appreciate comment!

If this is not normal then what should I look for that might be causing this other than the nut behind the wheel?

All comments graciously accepted and Thanks in Advance!
