Have replace front brake line/hoses and one of the calipers. Went away for about a week but it is worse than ever now. When I drive it the brake pedal is soft but the more I drive the harder it gets. Also. If i stop somewhere and let it sit for about 30 minutes the brakes drag so bad I cant get out if 2nd gear.

    Ive already done that. Along with a new caliper on one side and new metal lines. I did notice the rubber gaskets on the reservoir caps were wore out but that wouldn't cause the problem would it?
