Do you mean pads only ,if so check they are moving freely in the slides ,you could try jacking up individual wheels and see that they lock when the pedal is pressed.Also check you have not kinked a flexi pipe.If you replaced discs then could be dirt on the mating surface causing the disc to sit squint.

No use bleeding only the front , bleed all in correct sequence .
