HI,

Ok as you said you replaced all components, I assume you replaced the calipers as well. the most common issue is installing the new calipers on the wrong sides - they fit either side but are actually side specific for correct bleeder screw replacement. I have seen more than my share of Master Techs make this mistake, so it is common to do

Look at the calipers you installed. Are the bleeder screws below or above the brake hose to caliper connection?

If they are below, then you have them on the wrong side. When the bleeders are below the connection, there is always an air bubble at top caliper that will never bleed out. Swap sides with the calipers and bleed them and you are good to go.
