I need help
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 1 month ago.

Have you bleed the brakes at the wheels and have you used a diagnostic tool to bleed the ABS system?

Have you used line clamps to close off the rubber lines to the wheels to narrow it down to see if its one brake causing this issue?

Have you checked for concerns at the calipers where as the slide pins are binding or the brake pads are binding?
