I bought new brakes for my 2003 Alero front pads and had someone put them on and the brakes are lower than they were before they put them on. Is there any way that I can get my brakes evaluated to see what the problem is. Or can you give me a suggestion The new brakes that were put on my car and the brakes are still low as a matter of fact they are lower than at first.

Do you
have the same problem?

Do you mean the brake pedal is low? Do you have 4 wheel disc brakes or rear drum brakes? Have you checked the master cylinder?
