The brakes on my 94 Mustang are not working. The pads were replaced like normal using the special tool to screw the calipers back in and all that stuff.

The calipers only go out slightly when the brakes are applied (they hardly touch the rotors they touch at all) and they stay there-do not retract. Brake pedal feel is normal. This is the same story on both sides of the rear so I don't think it is a caliper problem or it would just be one side right? There is fluid getting back to the rear wheel because I have bled the system and fluid comes out. I have also replaced the master cylinder. Any suggestions?

Welcome to M&M.
I'm not familiar with the '94 rear brakes, but when doing brake work on older front disc brakes, it takes a few strokes of the master cylinder to get the pistons back out where they belong after they have been retracted to install new pads.
This might be all you need.
There might also be a trick involving the parking brake, if it uses the wheel brakes.
