Sounds like you still have air in the master cylinder. Probably in the lines too.With ABS there are 4 seperate lines.After you bleed the master,then bleed the lines one at a time.

these trucks had only rear abs. very tempermetal. theres a bleeder on the dump valve on the back that u have to bleed if u dont then your brakes will always be squishy. only down fall that part gets really rusted and mine broke off so now i have to find another valve but you can not get them from any store so i just live with my abs light on and squishy pedel
