usually either the calipers have dirt in them and need to be replaced or the rubber lines leading to them have collapsed inside and need to be replaced.. really kills the gas mileage uh!! chevy has had problems with rear discs on these vehicles,70%of braking is on the front,30% on the rear. therefore the pistons get little use and stick. there are stainless sliders the calipers move on,you need to clean and lubricate them,this should stop the brakes from dragging. I have a 1999 Blazer and my rear brakes were grinding so I replaced the pads and rotors but had the same sticking problem. They dont offer a rebuild kit for my calipers so I had to replace the calipers also.

Check your fluid level first. If it is low then your problem is a leak in the system. If the fluid level is OK then you probably have a bad master cylinder. To check the master cylinder pump on the brake pedal and hold the pedal down. Usually the pedal will slowly go to the floor. This means the master cylinder is not holding pressure. You should not take any chances with brakes!! Get them repaired at a qualified repair facility.
