brakes sticking even after replacing all calipers!

I had all calipers replaced after they went bad one by one over the past 5 months. Now today, i noticed the right rear is sticking a hair every once in a while. Anyone have this issue. We bled the **** out of these brakes too!

You might have one that has collapsed internally not allowing the fluid to return like it should.

+1 for hose(s). I've had this problem in other vehicles over the years; Some hoses collapse internally and create a blockage which will usually let fluid TO the caliper (because of hydraulic pressure), but not back past the blockage... All of this adds up to a locked/stuck caliper. Bleeding it doesn't always identify any problems since the fluid usually has no trouble when it's forced under pedal/booster pressure.
