FRONT BRAKES DO NOT RELEASE

1999 Ford F-150 • 225,000 miles

The front brakes do not release when I let off the brake pedal. I have replaced the pads and calipers. I have also disassembled the master cylinder and cleaned it up. It seemed to be working correctly when I bench bled the master cylinder. I had someone tell me that sometimes the rubber brake lines can collapse and cause the calipers to stick

Thats correct. The hoses are bad. Comes from not not changing the brake fluid on a regular basis like engine oil.
