Yep....sounds like you probably had a little air or condensation in the line from sitting so long. Good idea to have the lines bled/flushed and then new fluid added.

After sitting for a period, the system will relaxe, calipers will settle, rust will form on the rotors and drums, after applying the brakes a few times it all clears up, the rust is be cleaned off the surfaces and every thing returns to normal. More common in humid cliamates, all normal.

When my spongy BREAKS, I just get a new spongy...they're cheap. However, if I have spongy BRAKES, I would have BRAKES bled and new fluid put in. [emoticon]
