Did you grease the slide pins on the calipers so they move freely?

Just pulled them apart and checked the slides everything looks perfectly fine there the wire to the drivers side abs sensor is chaffed from the dust shield though I'm wondering if that could cause an issue

The next time it happens, open the bleeder valve on your caliper. If the wheel spins freely afterward, you have a collapsed rubber flex hose. These let pressure through just fine but your caliper has no return pressure. If one is bad, replace both front and also the rear hose to the axle assembly. 10 years is a bit eaerly for one to fail but it's possible you got a bad batch that wasn't quite up to standards.

Just replaced all the calipers and rubber lines on my 04, then bingo the master cylinder and that fixed it. not sayin the master cylinder is your problem, but I went thru the whole grease the pins, replace the calipers, then the hoses.
