Question about 2006 Chevrolet Uplander
The first thing you need to do is check the brake fluid level. If it is above the FULL line remove enough to put the level at the FULL line. Over filling a brake fluid reservoir will cause the brakes to LAG (press against the rotor constantly). Before you start removing wheels and going thru the hoops, the easiest (and most common cause of brake lag) is an over filled reservoir.

I beleive the rear calipers are the ratchet style, you have to use a tool to turn the piston so it retracts back into the caliper, if you didnt do this or didnt ratchet them in all the way, then they will be too far out and will cause what you are describing, basically applying pressure to the rotors all of the time. It is also possible that the calipers need replaced if you did indeed ratcheted the caliper piston in all the way originally.

have one person in the blazer pumping the brake pedal and then hold to the floor, crack the bleeder then tighten, release pedal, repeat till all air is out one side at a time, if this does not work then your ABS unit is bad witch if u follow your lines from your master cylinder u will find a black box with a motor on it, or the master cylinder itself is bad, it also can cause u to have no pedal, replace the master cylinder first, most likely cheaper.

I have a chevy uplander and you have to open the passenger door and its on the side of the dash, to the right of the glove box. You will notice a small rounf opening with just enough room for 2 fingers to go in. the whole side will come off when you pull it.

disc brakes on the rear of a vehicle have a screw out mechanism that attaches to the ebrake . this means that you must turn the caliper piston to recess into the cylinder.
open the bleed screw to make it move eazier.
