front brakes locked down

My truck had a bad tire bouncing issue and ended up being front caliper sticking. Got so bad that it wouldn't even let the truck get in od due to drag.Would stop without using brake pedal. Had both calipers replaced, lines, pads, rotors turned. Drove 10 miles, front brakes got so hot it warped rotors and smoked brakes as if on fire. What could be causing this? It has anti locks. Noticed electronic device on chassis rail with brake lines going through them. Assume this is part of anti lock. I'm assuming master cylinder sticking. Anything else.

No pinched lines. Hydroboost leaking? How to check?

Since this has been brought up I realize my problem started as soon as I did the flush of the power steering pump. I realized I had no play in brake pedal after wards. Noticed mpg going down and tire bounce came into play. Tire bounce was actually rotors warped and brakes gripping rotors causing this. No play in pedal means brakes already applied. How could flushing system cause this?
