Be sure to have the special tool to compress the caliper pistons.It is a small press that fits in the caliper which turns and presses the piston back down to allow clearance for new pads.make sure to turn to the point where the relief in the piston will accept the node on the pad.

I got a problem my brakes are getting stuck i already change the calipers and the hoses know i'm thinking that is something to do whit the abs or u got a sugesstion 1994 subaru legacy 2.2 awd

Most likely, the caliper is stuck on its support pins and fails to slide on these anymore. (The amount of sliding moton, when the brakes are appplied, is very small.) When the caliper is frozen" on the pins, one brake pad wears much more than the other, and puts undue side thrust the rust on the rotor. This is a common problem in the "rust belt" where road salt is present (and yes, it can happen over just one winter season). If everything else about the caliper assembly is ok, the fix is to install new pins, bushings, pin seals, and brake pads. Also, lub the pin parts with appropriate grease at assembly.
