good afternoon my name is ***** ***** I will assist
rear pads will not cause low pedal. air is the most common issue. even with someone pushing on the pedal when bleeding, the air is tough to get out. using a pressure bleeder will get rid of all the air by forcing the air out.
make sure the slides on the calipers are moving and not seized.
