Brakes keep sticking

Hey guys, I'm new to this site, and kind of new to diesels. I just bought an 01 F-350 7.3 powerstroke. When I got it, the guy said the brakes got hot on him one time. Well they got hot on me several times the other day, and I tore it apart yesterday to check, and the slide pins on the caliper brackets were rusted solid on both front sides. I got new brackets, slider pins, and brakes and put it all on last night. But today, on my way to work, it felt like the brakes were holding some while going down the road. And sure enough, both front sides got hot again. Can someone give me some insight on the problem before I go and buy new calipers? Please and thank you for any help!

Did you grease the slide pins? Did they seize in the caliper again? When you put the new pins in did you clean the chamber into which they slide or leave it? Are the rear pins stuck as well?
