Elise front brakes dragging - video attached

Hey Guys,

I heard a new noise coming from my front end the other days and got home and lifted the car up on a jack. I tried spinning the tires and heard this:
. I did check the other front tire and it was making the same sound.

I went ahead and replaced the pads on both wheels. After pushing the caliper pistons in and installing the new pads, the wheel spun freely with no noise. Once I pumped on the brakes a few times and tried to spin the tires, the noise came back.

Do y'all think the caliper pistons are at fault and need new seals etc? or maybe a rotor issue or something else?

Thanks in advanced,

Brady
