Bad how? Hard to press? Pedal goes to floor? Assuming no leaks and no air in system, a pedal that goes to the floor will be a bad master cylinder. A bad booster would make for a hard pedal.


Normally when installing brake pads you do not bleed the brakes as it is totally unnecessary. It is possible that you ran the system dry enough to require a trip to a Ford / Lincoln dealership to get the brakes bled properly. Did the brakes function properly before you worked on them?
