I had similar braking to what you are describing when I bought the truck and so far I've found a few issues which helped tremendously.
-Rear brake line was leaking at a join- I tightened connection and bled caliper
-Brake fluid was low, albeit clear
-PS Fluid was low.
The power steering in these trucks takes ATF and controls the brakes... I'll flush mine one of these days because the fluid does not look good at all, but filling the reservoir to the top helped the spongy feeling greatly.
I still need to pull wheels and do some more inspections and I'll probably bleed/flush the entire system before I decide I'm finished. I did already learn that when the craigslist ad says "new calipers" it really just means one new caliper.
