Replace the masyer cylinder where you put the fluid in,it could be inoperatable in the rear sylinder.Also replace the remainder of the rear lines you havent,the lines could be pluged expecialy if you live in a high moisture or cold climates where moisture can get in and rust inside the lines if it has set for any period of time. All of this will cost you around 30-50 buck if you can do it your self

Just changed front brakes now have slight pull to right. no steering whel play or extra pull on breaking, where should I start in diagnosing

Did you remove all rust from caliper and pad abutments
(sliding surfaces) ?
Did you put anti-seize on those parts, that need to slide
and be protected from future rusting?
Did you machine the rotors?
You don't put new pads on worn rotors
Did you bleed all 4 wheels (flush)
The right side is pulling because you most likey
have a caliper not completely releasing.
Sounds like you put the problem in there

We changed the disc pads on a 2001 silverado we had to open a brake line.we bleeded the brakes now we cant get the pressure back at the pedal.any suggestions?

When you bleed your brakes you have to start at the wheel longest distance from the master cylinder keep bleeding and putting fresh fluid in until fresh fluid comes out the bleeder screw do this by pumping brakes real slow tighten screw. do this at each wheel working your way closer to the master cylinder. The point of doing this is to replace old fluid and if done right you get all the air out of the brake system. You still have air in the system have you tried to put the lid back on your brake fluid reservoir and pump your brakes to the floor they should get tight unless you have a lot of air in the system. you mave have to do each wheel again just to get the air out.

Pull to the left, Brakes

Sounds like it was pulling before the brake job...if so the only thing you didn't replace was the rotors, I assume you turned them? and did you see hard spots on the rotor? discolored area that didn't cut the same......switch the rotors left to right and see if the problem moves or just replace them if they've been cut twice.
