I would have mentioned that if I had a response back from the questioner. As you must know you can bleed the brakes all day long and not get the brake pedal back if air had gotten into the ABS unit.

I just had a very bad experience with the brakes sticking on a 2005 Silverado Z71. 3 different master cylinders 2 sets of calipers 3 sets of brake shoes. Brake lines. Still sticking. Ended up being the booster.
