This may sound like a dumb question, but did you bleed both sides of each caliper? Did you use a power bleeder? Manual bleed? Vacuum bleed? Did it build pressure before the swap?

Front only, or front and rear?

During the caliper swap, when the fluid system was open, did the master cylinder reservoir run dry at any point?

If you are bleeding it correctly and see no more air in the system. Then try cycling the abs. Put the rear rims on and let the car go over 10mph a few times. I did 8 times. Since the fronts aren't moving it will activate the abs. I just did the 6 piston swap 2 weeks ago and had to do this.
