if they weere not locking up before you changed the brake booster , the eithier booster is installed incorrectly , or the wrong booster ,, or more likely , the adjustment in the booster to master cylinder rod , if this adjustment is not correct, then the brakes will stya slightly applied ,,

Mastertech154 is right, people even some experienced auto techs forget to properly adjust the booster pushrod to rear piston clearance at the brake master cylinder. Critical adjustment on Honda Acura cars.
