just recently replaced a lot of components on the brake system on my girlfriends car. including the master cylinder, proportioning valves, wheel cylinders, front calipers, pads, rotors, and a small section of the left rear brake line. now the car stops fine but it seems to be releasing slowly and the pedal seems hard, this has been bugging me for a while as to why it does this any ideas???

You did not tell us why you replaced all these parts. Was it because of this symptom?
