Have you checked the caliper slides??? They maybe seized or very sticky.
When was the last time the brake fluid was changed.???

mayb take your wheel off and see if the caliper slides are moving or not...and were the calipers fully rebuilt or just re kitted,,cos the inside if the caliper can get corroded and cause pistion to stick
