When you said "hard pedal", do you mean something like pushing hard on the pedal(stand on it) to makes it stop or the pedal feel "spongy" and it does not stop well?. If the later, the pads does not seats right onto the rotors due to the rust protecting on the pads surfaces and or the rotors need to be resurface.

Make sure your brake hoses are straight, you might "kinked" it when reinstalled calipers.

Sounds like a booster problem. Did you disconnect the vacuum line for any reason? Did you force the the pistons into the calipers very fast?

I did not think that I push it in to fast and I did not remove the hose I think I can check. Is it easy to replace a boster??
