Default Brake pedal wont fully return

1999 Durango 4WD 5.9L Vehicle sat a few weeks after a long drive in Utah's salty winter roads. Brakes work but the pedal will not fully return to normal, must pull it up in order for brakes to fully release. Replaced master cylinder, brake booster, front calipers and flushed system. Brakes release but pedal still must be pulled up to fully release brakes? There is no return spring on the brake pedal so I assume the m/c spring should be sufficient to move pedal back to the 'normal' position. Any ideas what could be causing this? I have run out of ideas.

Put some lube on the pedal pivot bushings.

You might have a stuck brake. I'd jack up one end, apply the brakes and leave them stuck, then see if both wheels turn by hand freely. If ok, do the other end.

Pull it apart, clean and lube everything.

It is EXTREMELY UNSAFE to drive it in this condition. You should not drive it until it is fixed.
