Brake pedal travel

I just rebuilt my brakes, new seals and boots, pads and rotors. Car stops as normal, pedal is firm and cannot be pumped up but pedal travel is much farther than before, any ideas, do I need to bleed the ABS?
Yes, bleed the abs. To make it easy, you will need a scan tool to do so. I have had luck once just driving a car on loose gravel and applying brakes hard enough to activate the abs. Did this a couple times then re-bleed and was able to get the air out.
