Replaced both front wheel hub assemblies and everything was fine but now that I put the car back together I get squishy brake pedal. When the car is off the pedal gets firm but when you start it basically goes to the floor. When I drive it I would have a squishy brake with first initial pump then on second pump it's stiff.

Pull front wheels and just do a visual inspection. Brake hose twisted, bolts loose. Put a socket on things you took loose during that process and make sure everything is tight.

I've seen brake hoses come loose while moving the caliper around. Check to make sure they didn't loosen and leak. I've also seen when the caliper pistons are pressed in a small amount of air somehow gets in and causes the spongy brake pedal. A quick brake bleed fixes it.

Sounds like something is pinched or loose.
