soft brake pedal Grand cherokee

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee LTd, 5.2 L V8. with ABS.

the brake pedal is soft and will slowly sink to floor.

Put new front pads on a year ago. Brakes worked fine until a couple months ago when I noticed the pedal sinking to the floor. Here's what I've tried so far with no success:

1. Bled the brakes
2. Installed new master cylinder
3. bled the brakes again.
4. also checked the lines for leaks, none found

any suggestions?

Check the rear brakes and wheel cylinders if they are drums in the rear.

They seem to be OK. Is there something specific you'd suggest I look for?
thanks

sounds like air

Sounds like you have air in system due to a possible leak.I would reinspect all hoses.and pull back all dust boots around wheel cylinders and look for fluid.Pay paticular attention to were there are fittings (connections).
It really sound like a classic leak in the system.Even a very small one can cause this.
Did you bench bleed the master before you put it on?
