Hello, I have a 91 Toyota Corolla with just over 162000 miles on it. Last year I noticed the brake pedal getting hard with repeated use and it felt like the brakes were draging so I took it to a mechanic. Normally I work on my cars myself, but I didn't have time. They told me that the bake lines needed to be replaced after about two minutes of looking at the car. They replaced the lines and the problem still persisted. I talked to a few of my friends a few that work in mechanic shops and they told me to replace things, and I did so with no success to the problem. I have replaced the calipers, pads, rotors, booster, master and even the proportioning valve. The rear brakes were adjusted and the problem still seems to happen, but now instead of the brakes feeling like they are dragging at the same time the pedal gets hard, they are doing it after the pedal gets hard. I have ran out of options on what to do with this cars bake problems other than replace every component to the breaks system. I would greatly appreciate any help you can give me on this.
