Brakes problem
2003 Chevy Trailblazer 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic

When driving the truck it feels like the brakes are dragging, in fact if you let off on the gas the truck will come to a complete stop. Local garage said dirt in the brake lines and flushed same. After 2-3 miles problem back. Son said front brakes smelled hot, but rear did not. Any idea what may cause front brakes to drag? Antilock problem?

The first thing I would ck are the calipers, remove the pads and compress the cylinders to see if one or both maybe stuck, lube up the guides they also could be sticking or froze. Report back with the findings and we can go from there
