The two replacement calipers are also sticking? What exactly are the symptoms.

Did you also replace the slide brackets for the pads, as well as the pads themselves? Properly grease the slides?

did you replace the brake hose? If not try cracking the bleeder open, if the caliper frees up then its most likely the hose.

If you replaced a "sticking caliper" more than once, I can almost guarantee you need a new brake hose to that caliper.
