Did you bleed the rabs valve at the antilock unit itself? After that recheck if you still have a too soft pedal try bleeding it in a X pattern, LF. RR, RF,LR. If that doesn't get then you might have to have the system reverse pressure bleeding, this is a last ditch effort as it can stir up the residues laying around in your brake system and cause other failures ie Master cylinder, antilock unit, wheel cylinders, calipers, etc. HTH
