1999 Dodge Durango brake lockup issue

I have a 1999 5.9 litre Dodge Durango SLT that I purchased new. About 2 years ago...(very scary that this has been going on this long) I had brake work done (usual pads replaced rotors trued)also replaced all 4 tires
(stock size) at a local shop. After this work was performed my brakes will sometimes lock up at slower speeds <25 MPH, they become VERY touchy, to the point that when driving through a parking lot, just barely touching the pedal can cause the brakes to lock up.
I have taken the Durango back to this shop three different times, and to two different dodge dealerships who can find nothing wrong with the brakes. This is absolutely NOT my imagination, does ANYONE have an idea that this could be?? Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance. -- paul

It's not your imagination. I had the same problem on my 01 Ram. My other half used to bitch whenever it happened and tell me I didn't know how to drive. I told the bitch to shut up. The dealer said it was normal although an independent shop I took the truck to said I had a bad brake caliper.

Suddenly, without warning, Bob M exclaimed (4/9/2005 6:11 PM):

I've just started noticing this too in my 2001 Dakota. They don't actually lock up, but after the truck's been sitting more than a day or two, they're *very* touchy. It seems to fade after I've been driving 10 minutes or so. Not sure if I have the same problem?
Did you replace the caliper, and if so, did it fix the problem?

I got into some really bad financial problems and had to sell the truck. (I was a police officer of 20 years and got hurt really bad on duty and was forced into early retirement) I never got the chance to fix the caliper.
