XK8 Front Brakes DRAGGING

Excluding calipers, what could hold pressure in the braking system to the
point of making the front brakes drag enough to feel. When the system is
cooled down and you open a bleeder, brake fluid shoots out under pressure.
The calipers retract smoothly with the bleeders open. I'm affraid I'm
answering my own question - Could it be the master cylinder?

Or the brake booster has gone bad.

Re: XK8 Front Brakes DRAGGING

Hoses will sometimes swell internally and cause this. I have seen it happen
on two vehicles. Pretty easy to check and replace generally.
