We bought the vehicle w/ 85,000 miles. Brake pedal pressure has not changed, even though I have put new pads and rotors on (front) and new shoes (rear) with a hardware kit (new springs, etc).
The car/brakes stop the vehicle just fine, but the pedal goes "WAY" down before there is any back pressure. There is no sponginess in the pedal; very solid and firm.
If I step on pedal w/out engine running, pedal is about half-way on its travel (down). When car is started, the pedal depresses - still firm and solid, although much closer to the floor.
Can you point me in the right direction? Any help would be much appreciated.
have the same problem?
