Just an update. Still no fix but think the issue is the caliper is not moving as freely as it should (seems like you nailed it, EK9!). If I press the brake pedal hard both pistons come all the way out, but do not think it is retracting after the pedal is released.
Should I attempt a rebuild of the caliper? I've watched a few videos on Youtube that say I should pinch the brake line then remove the caliper and pop out the piston. If it looks in good condition I could probably just replace some seals inside and rebuild. Anyone with experience and advice? Still learning, but figure this is a great opportunity.
Unfortunately already ordered and received rotors and pads...guess I'll just hang onto them or put them up for sale...
Thanks in advance! Will continue to post progress for future readers in case it is helpful.
