Assuming that you dealt with both calipers the same (i.e. you didn't have the hose clamped for the second caliper) then winding-back stiffness is not good. It may be worth a rebuild if you fancy buying the kit.. but when they get tooooo shonky it may be better value to go for a rebuilt caliper (basically all new parts inside a cleaned up like new old caliper body)... aboot £100 exchange.
The rears don't affect the front, if they're not working. The compensator determines how much force is applied to each end but once the brakes are on, each circuit is independent. If one caliper (or one end of the car) has shonky calipers, the other end is isolated and doesn't know about it.
No bullets for Chaingun..
