I've been working on a 96 forever, and I've had the same problem with the rear brakes. The drivers side rear-caliper was dragging, yet I'm not certian I aligned the notches in the caliper piston when I installed the replacement caliper.
However the first caliper was faulty, and the replacement only dragged until the pad wore down enough, due to the improper adjustment.
I now have the 'special tool' to turn the cylinder in, and I no longer bother with used brake parts.
I have my suspicions that the ABS might have something to do with this cars issues, but I'm not expert.
