2006 F-150 soft brake pedal

Got a 2006 F-150 with a soft brake pedal. If I pinch of the rear flex hoses, the pedal feels the same. If I pinch off the front flex hoses, the pedal gets rock hard like it should. This theoretically indicates that the problem is between the flex hose and the caliper. The truck has both BRAND NEW calipers in the front, new pads, and machined rotors. The system has been bled to the point where fresh clean fluid is coming out of the bleeder.

Anybody had this problem? Any advice?

90% of the time the soft pedal issue is caused by the actuator rod that is not adjusted right. Even a 16th of an inch off can lead to poor braking. You can do the fix yourself. The actuator rod is right after the MC. I'll come up with more info later... I have to go! But it's a cheap fix!
