New front brake line problem

I just had a shop install Steeda steel braded front brake lines, the brakes felt mushy / soft, so I took it back and had them re-bleed the brakes, but they still feel mushy. They should feel stronger / more firm responsive, right? Anyone have recommendations?

Something sounds wrong to me.... I could tell a BIG difference when I installed braided steel lines on my '97 Cobra front brakes.

Not sure exactly what would cause that mushy pedal feel... but don't think everything is correct. I know there's others on this board who know more about brakes than I.. but it doesn't sounds right to me.

Did you notice any leaking fluid? Are you sure they changed to braided lines? Just wondered if they did anything...

I am checking some of that now. I noticed no leaks and the new lines are in.
