Changed the master cylinder, calipers, bled the lines and now the brakes are grabbing??? Maybe about once every turn. Don't know if its in the front or back. Grabbing started after the work was done. any ideas pls???

Do you mean the brakes are stopping better than it was?
What year?

sounds like the caliper pistons might be binding and sticking! might need a rebuild kit

you can get new brake calliper at auto-parts stores, rebuild ones are cheap. just ask around. I went in and got some rebuilt ones very cheap and it worked great. I saw some chips on the corners of the piston on the calliper so I just bought a rebuilt one at the local auto parts store.
