ABS problems??1995 ZJ Grand Cherokee

Just got done putting new calipers,pads, rotors all the way around. Blew out the brake lines and replaced all fluids. The truck runs perfect then about 30 miles it seems the brakes seize up all of sudden. The truck seems to slow down. When I turn the truck off for about 30 seconds I hear the brakes releaseing pressure. Then it goes fine for another 24-30 miles. And does it again?? Any Ideas?? I got a new ABS computer on the way.

Were there deep divots worn into the steering knuckles at the brake pad contact points. This is common and can cause the pad to hang up and not properly release. If you suspect that the ABS system is somehow causing issues, just pull the relay.

What do you mean "hear the brakes releasing pressure"?
Are all calipers sticking, or only one or two?
How did you, "blow out the lines"?

Abs systems don't really do what you're describing.
'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
