Usually after brakes are changed, it takes time for it to break in. So the brakes wont be as "grippy" as before. If that does not solve your problem, then it might be because of air bubbles in the brake lines. Try bleeding the system. If that doesn't solve your problem, then it could be a problem with your calipers. You can fix it, but most people just get another one from the junk yard. Takes less time and it's cheap too. I was going to say it could be the master cylinder, but it wouldn't be. Because 240sx has a diagonal braking system. Which means if one cylinder fails then you would still have brakes in front right and rear left OR vice versa.

Check your brake caliper pistons for seizing in their bore. Remove the brakes again and see if the piston compresses steadily under minimal pressure. Determine whether front or back due to discoloration of the surface of the rotors-blue means heat and that will determine front vs rear.
