After bleeding the system 2x, the pedal still requires more than typical pressure to stop the vehicle. I've read comments about an ABS thing-a-mabob at the dealer/shop. Is this really necessary?

Do you
have the same problem?

If you have rear drum brakes, make sure the brakes shoes are properly adjusted. Also, when you bled the brakes, did you start from that farthest from the master cylinder and move to the closest?
