So a couple of months ago i changed a seized rear caliper nd front caliper ever since than i have to push down much lower on the pedal to stop the truck. I replace my master following proper bench blead method and i have also blead the brakes twice myself nd then brought it to my local mechanic to blead the brakes nd change the fluid and there is still mo difference in pedal hight or feel. they still feel very squish compared to my friends 96 where his pedal grabs nice and high im almost to the floor. So i was thinking mayb ill change all the rubber brake lines next the truck does have about 250k on it im not sure where i should look next any help would be great

I would be willing to bet there is air in the ABS pump/valving. I accidentally ran the master cyl reservoir dry when bleeding the brakes on my dads 99 mountaineer. I bled the hell out of the system and the pedal feel did not change. I brought it to the dealer and had the ABS bled. After that it worked just great.

It was under $100 I think. It was probably a year and a half ago so I don't remember.
