First thing I'd do is to bleed the brakes and get the air out. If that fixes it, and there are no leaks, then you're done. If you've still got problems at that point, then you can start looking at rebuilding components.

Here is the order of things I would do first:

#1 - Clean Shorts
#2 - Then follow WingAdmin's advice...
