Another brake issue

Hey guys:

Truck info is all in the sig.

Replaced the front calipers about 3 months ago. All was good until last week the fron drivers side started sticking. I know I greased the slides pretty well.

When Im driving, my brakes are very spongey. Sometimes I wonder if Im gonna stop now. There is no putting your foot on the brakes and stopping it, I have to tap the brake pedl, then apply pressure before they will do any thing.

Could this be my MC going bad? Maybe booster? I have noticed now, that there is oil all up unde my dash behind the booster at the pedal and it has run down onto my floor mat, like the booster has puked it out the back.....

Any ideas?

i dont think the barke fluid can get into the cab of the truck. sounds like it is probably coming from the hydraulic brake booster. it runs off the power steerng pump so you will see the fluid level dropping on the res of the pump.. ill bet the boosters are not cheap but i havent checked
