Explorer 8.8 swap issues

I have swapped an 8.8 from a 05 exlporer sport trac under my truck and I've run into a few issues.
1) My brakes don't feel right or brake hard enough.
The brakes have been bleed several times and there's definitely no air in the lines. I have bought a master cylinder for an 05 sport trac to swap in there but I wanted to see if anyone else has had this problem before.

2) The parking brake lines were not the right length. What year and model vehicle do i need to get them for so they will be the right length?
