I changed the front brake pads on my 2010 Tacoma and now when I apply the brakes the pedal seems spongy and when I mash down hard the pedal travels excessively and a clicking sound can be heard under the dash in the vicinity of the brake pedal. The truck stop fine and there are no other issues.
Do you
have the same problem?

System probably need to be bled, may have air in it. Have a pro do it with a scanner so he can open abs valves.

Thanks. However we did not break the integrity of the brake hydraulic system when we swapped the pads. Could they still need bleeding?

That is what normally causes a spongy pedal or you put cheap pads onit. But I'd go for bleeding.
