I've replaced the master cylinder, pads, rotors, on a 2000 Suzuki Swift. The brakes work when warmed up. But after sitting for a few hours, when you take off, you have to really press down hard to get them to stop. Check all vacuum lines and they work fine. Any ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?

Doc's suggestion will rule out the brake booster if its functioning correctly-
