ON a '99 its almost a restoration Calipers sticking, pistons sticking, guides or pins binding, aged rubber hoses, and the rears are in the same condition. You bleed and flushed the old fluid right, go back check it all again. Check the master cylinder too.

Does it change anything that it happens to be a 4wd? Yes I flushed the old fluid out. The piston is a pain to push back in on the drivers side. The brake lite is on but not the ABS lite.

Piston(s) should easily slide back into their bores. 4wd isn't a factor unless you off road it then there's more debris, dirt and grit over the years work the parts at a faster rate "severe service"
