09' Borrego Brake Bleeding?

Good Evening All,
This weekend I replaced all four sets of brake pads (Rotors still had a lot of meat on them). We bleed the system starting with the rear brakes (Some air in the drivers side rear) working our way to the front. After test driving and brake tests, the pedal was still hitting the floor. We repeated the bleed process and I am still having the same issue (ABS is coming on when I slam on brakes which is good). What can be the cause of the soft pedal after two bleeding's?

You somehow got air in the system. Keep bleeding and be absolutely sure that you don't let the brake reservoir get low.
Good Luck,

Kiadad,
We bled them for a while, topping off the fluid before moving onto the next disc. The brake booster seems to be acting fine, so I am not sure. Maybe I'll bring it to a shop for a professional bleed. Who knows...
