If you happened to leave an open hose where it could drain all the fluid from the lines you may want to start at mastercylinder them proporsing valve then go to bleeding wheel cylinders. Just pump up and crack lines they sometimes want to keep that air there even when your not getting it out of the bleed valves.

Avery, did you open the bleeders when you pushed the caliper pistons back? If not there was no reason for the brakes to have air in them to start with. You need to make sure the pads and hardware was installed correctly. Sometimes when something is out of place it pushes the caliper back in when you let off the brake.

no i didnt open any bleeders just collapsed the calipers and put the pads on..when you bleed the master cylinder should you have the same amount of pressure coming out of each line?because the front line which is going to the back wheels just barely pushes any fluid out...but the rear line which is going to the front blows the $**t out pretty good...guys thanks for any help yall can give and have given
