Brakes again

So today i go to stop.. Pedal slaps the floor and i had fluid pissing out the caliper at the pistons. Replaced both no problem there. Here's where I go lost, i was bleeding with another tech and absolutely no air was coming out what so ever!! Pedal is still very low I'm so lost. Lets here your input. the pedal grabs very low.

Maybe your master cylinder is leaking.
Maybe a problem with the lines and your looking in the wrong spot.
Maybe you crimp a line while off roading with the toyota guys and it's taken this long to be effected.

I'm just throwing ideas out there so keep that in mind.

The master is what i'm and other techs and friends are saying. Not losing fluid anyplace and the level isn't changing

It has to be the master cylinder bleeding off internaly, one of the piston seals in it is probably bad. Try cracking the lines at the master cylinder.
