Bleed as much fluid threw your lines as possible. try to open each valve on the caliper atleast 3 times with pumping inbetween opening and closing. I cant say if this happened but when you install the spindle the caliper was usually turned upside down which has cause an air bubble in your brake system.
Thanks man for the advice!!! At this point I'll take all the help I can get! I've bled my brakes system so many times now that I have literally gone through 3 bottles of brake fluid. I've also bled them in the order your recommending and still there is no pressure in the rear brakes. I don't understand why I can't get the air out if there is air? I've bled brakes before and have never had a problem like this. I called Fab tech and they told me its air and to get a power bleed?

yes it is not your bpv at all. BPV does not cause sinking squishy pedal. I run no bpv in the back of my truck, brakes just fine :P Most likely air somewhere or a leak?

Good to know!!! Thanks man I guess I wont waste any more time with the BPV! It's not a leak so I'm guessing its air? I've bled the brakes though and still nothing
