    What did you replace on the front brakes? Just for future referance you don't have to open the system to replace pads...but if you did i'd re-bleed them starting with the passenger side and then the drivers. If you bled them wrong that could also be your problem. There's prior posts on how to bleed brakes if you're not sure. And no you don't have to bleed to rears...it wouldn't hurt though. Just make sure you keep the brake reservior topped off with fluid....you did put the cap back on right?

    Like severe said, You dont have to open the system to change the pads, If you cant get the new pads over the caliper, use a c-clamp to compress the caliper piston and you will be good to go.
    How did you bleed them?
