How did you compress the front calipers? Was the driver side very hard to compress? When you bled them, you had fluid out of both sides? How did you bleed the brakes. I know this sounds dumb, but some people have one person inside pump the pedal, then hold. The outside guy opens the bleeder. Or you open the bleeder 1st, then have inside guy push pedal to floor and hold until you close the bleeder. Im just trying to figure out what may have happened. Its rare to just lose a pedal after replacing pads. I have seen the seal on the master cylinder blow by trying to "pre pump" the brakes too fast, and hard. Only way to check this is unbolt the 2 nuts from the master, and pull it forward to inspect for leakage. You can break your system down into sections also. Try visegripping your caliper hose on one side, then pump up the brakes. See if you can get a rock hard pedal with the car off. If you have the hose crimped, and the pedal gets hard, your problem lies past the vise grips, and is in the hose, or caliper. If you find this to be the case, replace both sides. (When you buy socks, you dont buy 1 sock) whatever you do on one side, perform same action on the other side.
