Question about 1998 Chevrolet C1500
I have a 1998 chevy C-1500 truck. nomatter what i do, i cannot get a full brake pedal out of it! The wheel cylinders,rear brakes,drums,brake lines to the back of the truck have been changed. Also, the front calipers,rotors,master cylinder, were recently changed. I plug the master cylinder and bench bleed, but when i try to bleed out the system, i can never get a pedal that is not squishy. it seems like there is no pressure to the rear brakes. which is very ******* rotors.(2nd set this year) any suggestions? the abs seems to be working .when i hit an icy spot it seems to work fine . thanks
Try a clean and adjust on the rear shoes, because sometimes when they aren't properly adjusted they won't seem to work properly. Also there is a common "squishy" petal feeling after brake work on most all larger GM's around that year, wich I have run into several times. Try test driving it, and put a couple miles on it, That usualy helps.
