Front caliper pistons sticking after rebuild

I had two front calipers that were frozen. I pumped them out with a grease gun, cleaned up the pistons and inside the calipers (no pitting on the pistons and minimal pitting on the calipers. Problem I'm having now is I cannot get the piston to go back in without sticking. The problem seems to be either the seal or the seal groove. Without the seals in the pistons slide in easily. I've tried both the old and new seals in the calipers and can't get the piston past about halfway into the caliper. Anyone have any ideas?
