97 Ranger Break problems

I have a 97 ranger 2.3l 5spd in decent condition with around 220k mi. Ever since I got it in the rain especially the front breaks were a little touchy and grabbed easily. I have replaced all the pads front and rear, rotors and drums are good. I replaced all the rear break lines and cylinders because they went bad. The front seems to be grabbing a little harder then usual (no front ABS so they are gonna lock if you slam them of course...). I wrecked two years ago in the snow because pf these stupid breaks... But The one thing that has made me sort of rule out problems that I have read, is that if I am going 5-10 mph, and ride the brakes for a second or two... The problem completely disappears until pretty much the next time I drive it. No mater rain or snow, if I do that it always corrects the prob. I know for sure that's hell for the drivetrain and breaking system.. So I was wondering what someone though this problem could be.. What would cause me to have to heat them up to stop grabbing ..
Thanks in advance for any responses they are greatly appreciated.
