Ok I just put on my new rotors on the front and rear when i got everything back on the pedal sank a quite a bit, i figured since we had to bleed the brakes in front to get the new rotors on some ait got in the lines, so i just bled the front ones again and drove it in reverse and everything but my brakes still arent as tight as they were before, but they are a little better...any ideas??

Why'd you bleed your brakes to put new rotors on..?

the caliper wouldnt go back over cuz the old pads and rotor wer worn so the circle thinkg was sticking out and i opened the screw for the line to push it back in

All you have to do is push that piston back (I use a C-clamp and an old pad). Once it's back far enough just reassemble everything and pump the brakes. No need to bleed.

it sounds like you might need to bleed them again.
