Question about 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Changed the brake pads including one caliper and master cylinder. Brakes are still spongy and will go to the floor. Bled the front brakes.
I just went to Brake Masters this morning and had them replace the Master Cylinder since I was experiencing the pedal very spongy and going to the floor. When they replaced the Master Cylinder and they gave me back the car, the brakes were still spongy and going to the floor. I addressed this to them and they took another look at it, but when I took it for a second time, the brakes were extremely spongy. It was almost like they gave me back my car in worst condition to when I brought it in. Can you help?

You have air in the system. You need to bleed the brakes. Start at the right rear tire and then the left rear, then right front, the left front. Keep an eye on the res. don't let it run out of fluid. Pump the peddle and bleed in order outlined above. (don't release the peddle untill the bleeder is tight.)
