Test drive until you or whatever u have to do to get the dragging to occur, then jack up front wheels turn them if they are dragging see if it is both sides, then Crack the bleeder on caliper see if they get loose, if they do we will work on hydraulics if they don't then mechanical such as caliper to bridge or pin to bushing or piston to caliper. This is our first step
