There are several things that you need to do to get a good pedal. Start bleeding the brakes on the right rear then left rear then right front then left front. also when bleeding the brakes DON'T PUMP THE PEDAL Push it down once to keep from mixing the air with the fluid. Then let off of the pedal and wait 5 seconds before pumping once again. This takes longer but it is effective. Make sure you have new fluid going through the system at the right rear before going to the next wheel.
