I suspect it's not a hose or bleeding issue, but rather the caliper bracket slide pins. They are notorious for sticking on these trucks due to dirt and rust. When you did your brake job did you pull the pins from bracket and clean and lubricate them? Were the rubber dust boots on the pins intact? If your brakes haven't worn too much due to sticking, there's probably still a chance to pull it apart and check/re-lube/replace the pins (or possibly the entire caliper bracket) before the new pads and rotor are damaged.
