Bleed breaks pedal still spongy

On these old manual brake systems without automatic adjusters you have to set the shoe clearance by turning the adjuster on each shoe out so the shoe is very close to the drum. If there is too much clearance between the shoe and drum the shoe will move as far as it can and never touch the drum, this will make a low or no pedal pressure.

Brakes are spongy

Did you also bleed the rear brakes? Also try the gravity bleed method working from the right rear wheel, then left rear, right front, then left front. Be SURE to keep the master cylinder full at all times while bleeding.

Loose breaks when almost stopped

Does your brake pedal hold pressure when just pressing down while stopped? If not, the bleeding has not released all of the air yet...or the master cylinder is thoughts are still the bleeding of the lines or you would have noticed the fading pedal before attempting to drive. Be sure to bleed at each wheel cylinder bleeder valve. You must start at the right rear, then left rear, then right front, last the left front. You did not mention why you were changing some of the brake lines? Your Silverado does not sound old enough to need this unless you had under body collision, or unusual rust present. Hope this helps.
