Sounds like the master cylinder is malfunctioning. You need to get your vehicle to a repair facility to check it out and confirm the problem.

replaced calipers and brake hoses still had some of the problem left. replaced slide bolts and sleeves and it got somewhat better still evaluating results.this problem was only the left front brake on a 4 wheel drive system.

To the slowing down while Burban in motion , when my Burban was doing that my back brakes were sticking and the rear brake adjuster had to be adjusted a little.
