June 15, 2011long story short, i replaced my pads and rotors and calipers today on a `97 suburban. after i was done i had no pressure in the brake pedal, it was really spongy and would only brake at the very end. quite a bit of fluid came out when i was replacing the calipers so naturally i thought there was air in the system. well after bleeding the brakes 3x they still only brake at the very bottom of the firewall, and not efficient even then. after bleeding all the wheels rr lr fr and fl in that order, no air is coming out at all. prior to me replacing them today the brakes worked fine except that the calipers werent holding the pads in place correctly and the rotors were a little warped, which is why i replaced everything.
i couldnt imagine that the master cylinder just up and crapped out on me.
any ideas? i used the two person method of bleeding the brakes and this has worked well for me in the past.
im thinking about just taking it to the shop and having them pressure bleed it to see if that works.
