I have a 2005 chevy silverado 2wd 2500. Front rght caliper broke and was draging on ground, maybe 30 ft. Had it towed and replaced. I have tried bleeding the brakes a few ways. But it seems theres still air. The piston wont squeeze. Whats the solution fluid is good and back brakes are fine. Hopefully theres another to get air out besides the very known ways. If it happens to be the master cylinder is there a for sure way to see if its bad. I took it to a place also and they bleed it and couldnt get fronts to work, They saqid take it to this place that has a specialty machine that will get air out and make them worl. Is this true. I would like to do myself if possible thanks bp
