I'm not sure what bushing you are refering to. Is it on the caliper slide where the caliper bolt goes through? Or are you refering to the rubber boot around the caliper piston?
As far as the brake pedal, it could be a couple things. First, you said there are no leaks. When you compressed the caliper piston back in to the caliper, did you loosten the bleeder valve or allow the fluid to return to the master cylender?
Also, I want you to check the carpet under the dashboard, (drivers side) where the brake rod (attached to the pedal) goes through the firewall to the brake booster. Check to see if there is any evidence of brake fluid.
Finally, are the rear brakes properly adjusted?
As far as the brake light, make sure there is fluid in the master cylender.
If you can answer these questions, I would be able to help you better.
