Just read your thread. First thing to look at when brakes seem to be sticking, is to lift the lid on the brake fluid reservoir. The rubber on the back of the lid should be nice and firm. If it is, that's great. But if it is droopy, then some one has added a petroleum product such as power steering fliud. That would cause all rubber in the brake system to swell, blocking off the flex hoses and holding the brakes on. This doesn't happen very often, but when it does, all parts with rubber in them will need to be replaced. That would be master cylinder, ABS components, rubber flex hoses at the wheel, calipers, etc. I hope this is not your case! Some times sticking brakes can be the 'sliders' seized at the calipers. Good Luck.
