new brakes worse problem

i hope somebody can help. truck needed brakes as the rotors were warped. truck would bounce up and down during braking. i replaced rotors and pads on the front now it still bounces and the peddle is soft and bounces. i bled the system although not much air came out. what did i do wrong?

Could the sliders in the caliper bracket cause that?

I know from experience that it will definately cause it to pull to one side.

Only if it's hanging up
Check sliders and shim

well i got rotors and the ones they sold me for the front were for the rear. the ones they sold me for the rear were not even for my truck. finally got they part fixed. then i found slide pins on the front right that were locked up. hopefully when i get that fixed it will be back to normal. thanks for the replies.
