Try replacing your hose's as it sounds like they are weak and collaping with the vacuum and not releasing. I would try this first then work up to the other two parts after all if the hoses are bad it dont matter how good the other stuff is as the hoses carry the fluid and if the pressure cant get to or from the calipers it dont do much good.
