i have a 92 Corrado with ABS and im having a problem with the brakes dragging and the pedal not coming all the way back. i have to actually pull the pedal up with my foot or the brakes will keep dragging badly. the pedal will bounce back most of the way, but stops before the last inch or so. the abs light functions properly on start-up but never comes on during driving so is it the ABS unit or is it something else ?
i had wilwood 4 piston calipers on the front, SS lines and super blue fluid.
so far i've tried:
removed wilwoods, replaced with original calipers
replaced drivers side rear caliper (thought it was sticking?)
bled the system 3 times (once with a pressure bleeder)
my thoughts are:
that maybe the passenger side rear caliper is crap and needs to be replaced? maybe it's sticking too ?
still has air in the system ????
ABS pump is broke?
ANY advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Re: brakes sticking ? need help! (VR6 LC6V C)

Maybe a master cylinder? Do the brakes feel like they are properly bled?

Re: brakes sticking ? need help! (blkaudicq)

You mentioned that the pedal doesn;t return all the way to the stop when you let it go...if that's correct I'd suspect return spring/pedal pivot lubrication as a potential problem. I've had calipers hang up (support bushings get old and tired) but the pedal always returned to the stop when I took my foot off. If the pedal itself isn't coming off all the way that could be your prob right there....and pedal springs and lubing the pivot is cheap to fix too!
