Default Spongey brake pedal on '00 Legacy

So I've had my Subi since May of last year and it's always had spongey brake pedal. I've hada couple classmates look at my pads and they said the pads looked fine,might need new rotors. I took it to Brakes Plus and a local Saburu shop, they wanted to both do about $1600 worth of work to Olive (legacy) and I only paid $1400 for her. Aside from tbe brakes it's a very strong car! Any help is much appreciated. Thanks yall

-Jack it up n flush/replace all brake fluid
-Stainless lines make a major difference.
If the idle wonders after its warmed up it could be a vac booster on its way out.

If your going to flush the brake system Id advise getting hydrologic fluid dye ( red or blue ) and adding 2-3 drops to the Qt before adding it to the revisor. This helps knowing when the new fluid is all the way through and old fluid is gone. The dye is only a few bucks on eBay ( Rekhaoil dye ) and one ounce if basically a lifetime supply.

Maybe you have air in the system. Try to bleed your brakes.
