Dragging Brakes

Hey guys I'm new to diesels and have never worked on brakes before so I'm still learning but, I'm having an issue with my FL and RR brakes dragging on me. Both started at the same time. Only drove 4 miles after it started happening. Truck pulls hard to the left and the pedel is hard to press. When I got home I could smell them. It just hit 100K miles. No idea what previous owner did to it because I bought it from a dealer. Reading other threads through searching I've seen a lot about flushing the brake fluid. Gonna try that tomorrow. Any ideas of why both would start at the same time would be helpful.

So I talked to a guy I work with who has had the same problem with his 6.0 and he thinks my ABS Module is the problem. I started it up last night and it drove just fine, no dragging.

Could be slide pins, piston getting stuck after use from heating up, or internal seals in master cylinder leaking by and not releasing pressure. Abs and hydroboost very rarely goes bad.
