    I just got my rear brakes done yesterday, i put new shoes + springs, cleaned everything up good and finally adjust them up nice.

    I know im getting better braking now but my pedal still soft...i bled the brakes like it should be done too :dunno:

    Front rotors and pads are to replaced but would that explain my soft pedal??

    Assuming everything is stock size, air in the lines or soft flex hoses that also need replacing.

    not sure what you meen by "soft". if you meen spongey, yeah ya still might have air in the lines. also double check for leaks. especially rear wheel cylinders. if you meen it has too much travel in the pedal you can adjust that above and behind the pedal. let me know how it turns out.
