REAR CALIPERS WERE JAMMED UP/ HANGING UP STICKING. sorry about the caps,lol. Temp solution was to pull both rear and ft calipers work them in and out, wire wheel the sliders/old ft pads rear were new silicone brake grease pad contact points(where they slide in and out of the calipers) thorough brake flush and no more probs.
