BRAKE QUESTION - HELP

So one of my rear calipers on a 99 F450 2wd 7.4l froze . I bought a loaded set and replaced both sides . Bled the brakes and everything worked fine . A day later I go to use the truck and now the brakes are holding a super tight grip on the front , both sides . I shut the truck off and turn it back on , let it idle for a minute and the truck is fine I start driving up the driway and I touch the brakes again , bam the fronts are locked solid again . Shut the truck off and this senario happens again over and over . I'm totaly confused , is there some type of reset or did I bleed the brakes the wrong way ? Its got me totaly baffeld .

Air in the lines maybe? Bleed the fronts as well as the rears. Make sure you're using DOT3 fluid.

hhmmm, air in the lines shouldn't cause the front to lock up.
I would first think maybe the rubber flex lines in the front or one of them has rotted inside out and not releasing fluid pressure?? But i dont see how shutting it off would change this? interesting, good luck.

Drain your power steering system and temporarily start the truck and see if the condition still exists. If it goes away, you need a new hydraulic booster assembly.
