Question about 2004 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

Brakes are a weak point

Bought this gmc sierra 1500 last fall. 4x4 extended cab. I noticed the brakes just aren't like my 1976. During a panic stop the truck will keep rolling and the pedal bounces off the floor. It has a much longer braking distance than seems normal. I've installed steel brake lines, machined all the rotors and deglazed the pads. Just didn't help. I took it to the dealer I bought it from and they said the brakes are fine. I have noticed the hotter the brakes are the better they grab, When cold there is a longer braking distance. It has oem pads, I'm thinking maybe some aftermarket organic pads might be better, but not sure. Have you heard of this before? Thanks, Bob

    Thanks for the feedback! Is there a particular brand you prefer such as napa? I've heard BBC has some good products.

Parking brake issues


It seems you did not do a proper bleeding..Make sure all the end connection are locked at some point else there will be no pressure build up.Also check the brake level when bleeding and do not allow it to go empty..If you can't get any pressure then check the master brake cylinder which may need repair or replacement.
