1.) Break in/bed pads.
2.) Might need to bleed your brake lines.

Last time I had my brakes done, the pedal was actually very stiff and responsive as soon as the new pads and rotors were in, and got softer over time.

bleed my own all the time without the pressure bleeder (although the bleeder is easier to use) spongy pedal feel sounds like air in the system, bleeding my brakes deff helped. the minute i tap my pedal it catches.

so when you say bleed. to get rid of all the oil and refil it or just take out the airbubbles?

bleed as into just to take out the air bubbles in the line, you will need to buy a bottle of fluid to keep the resivor topped off so it doesnt run empty. i let mine run empty when changing my brake lines and i had to bleed it over 14 times to get all the air out. took me 3 days total to do that.
