Sometimes it takes a few times to get all the air removed from the system, how many time times did you bleed them? Are you adding some fluid as you bleed the brakes you could be sucking in some air? Are you sure you have no leaks? You know that you need to bleed the master cylinder first? then the lines? you may have air in the master....

We did bleed them several times and made sure the fluid was full. We have looked for leaks everywhere and can find nothing. First we replaced the calipers and lines then after not being able to get a stiff pedal we replaced the master cylinder. We didn't however bleed the master first. We bled so many times we went thru 2 qts of fluid!!! Could one of the new calipers we put on be bad??
