Poor man 5 lug swap brake pedal spongy

So I’ve searched and searched and I can’t seem to find the answer I need. I’ve done everything needed to swap everything out. My issue is after bleeding my brakes numerous times, there’s a lot of travel on the brake pedal once I start the car. If it’s off, there’s no travel to the pedal. I’m currently using rsx rear brake calipers and crv front calipers. I did point the rsx caliper upward to bleed it with a 2x4 between the piston and caliper. Literally gone through 3 big bottles of brake fluid and getting frustrated. Hoping someone had the same issue and was able to figure it out.

Are you bleeding the caliper completely upside down? I had the same issue you did when I used the RSX-S calipers

It has to be completely upside down for me to bleed my brakes. I have to disconnect the caliper, unbolt brake line brackets to get more slack and bring it nearly to the front of the rear tire well.

I wish I had a pic, but that was how I was able to bleed them. You need the wood, but you might not need it if you use a vacuum bleeder..
