Installing brake system 1979 Firebird Formula

I'm rebuilding Firebird Formula with brand new brake system through out (booster, cylinder, lines etc) and am trying to find diagram for the brake lines around the front sub frame from the booster/cylinder to the splitter and on to the front discs. Any help would be great.

There are clips welded to the subframe where the lines cross over (and on the diff axle tubes as well), look for them and let them guide the install of the new lines, I know this info 1st hand, had a 79 Trans Am

2001 Silverado 2500 HD Why Rear brakes don't work after I installed new hydro-boost power booster, master cylinder, calipers, and pads. I bled master cylinder before installing, and brakes beginn


Hello Patricia,

Have you checked the master brake cylinder reservoir for brake fluid loss?

I don't suspect the master cylinder as you have replaced it... but am more suspect of a leaking brake line or fitting which should have
been discovered when you had the system bled.

The only time I ever had a rear brake problem with a 2500 series Chevrolet was due to seized rear brake caliper guide pins...as your calipers are also new that is not your problem.

If your brake pedal feels spongy and travels to the floor board you have air in the system, a brake fluid leak or a failure in the power steering system, such as a broken hose, broken power steering pump drive belt, or failed pump, would result in a loss of pressure to both the hydro-boost and steering.

Replace brake booster , what parts to remove,


You will need to remove the fluid lines going to the booster, the vacuum line coming from the plenum also any electrical cables for the fluid level sensor etc. Then you remove the bolts securing the booster to the large round metal box its attached to. You can then either replace the booster or run a rebuild kit through the unit. A rebuild kit should be purchasable through your local parts shop.

Brake pedal will not depress


Let the fluid out of the master cylinder or from a line. If the pedel  then goes down w/o the fluid, then the booster is working ok. Rebuild or replace the master cylinder.
