The "too much freeplay" problem is common after changing pads, and especially common after rebuilding calipers. Using a flashlight, see if you can see any light between the pad and the rotor. There should not be. If there is, then remove the pad, push the puck out slightly, and gently hammer the pad back in as a tight fit.

Sponginess on the other hand, always means air in the system.
