I put some SSBC slotted rotors about a month ago and now it seems i have a caliper that is sticking. I notice a "bounce" while driving when the air temp is 90+. Today on my drive home, the "bounce" started and then about 3 miles down the road, I hit my brakes and the pedal went all the way to the floor. Traffic was backed up so I had to stay on the brakes a while. If I pumped the pedal it would build pressure and the pedal would feel normal. After i got out of traffic and on kind of open road, they started doing fine. Any suggestions? Change the caliper? Hose collapsing? Master cylinder going out?

BTW, I bled them about 2 weeks agom thinking air may be in the line. Seems that didn't work.

Not sure what you mean about bounce, but if you are able to pump them up, usually means there is air in them.

I was having a hell of a time with my brakes recently, found a guide that helped me troubleshoot them.

www.mightyautoparts.com/pdf/articles/tt82.pdf

Explains how to test the master cylinder, check for air in the lines etc.

I got mine sorted out, but it seems to be a different issue than yours.
