Question about 1993 Ford F250
Brake pedal is extremely hard to press. slows it down but not good enough to drive it. it happened instantly... worked fine one minute then got hard to press the next.
You may have lost you brake assist. Look for any disconnected or broken hoses and vacuum leaks especially the one going to the brake booster. make sure that the check valve is good it should allow air through in one direction but not the other. if all checks out good apply vacuum to the power brake booster and make sure it hold if not replace the power brake booster.

My feeling is that you did not use a high quality pad like the Bendix or wagner thermo quiets and the rotors likely need surfacing even if they are new they can be warped due to the way they are stored. Good Bendix pads for this vehicle retail for around 75.00 or more

SOURCE: Trans clunking when slowing down
Sounds like youi may have a few serious problems going on to have that kind of back lash occuring at higher speeds. I have experiance with low spped clunks on Bronkos and your type of vech being a car dealer. One you might try for low speed clunk on take off and braking at stop likts just completeing a stop? Pull the drive shaft and lubricate the splin - two check your leaf springs for weakness and wore bushings - take a look at your shocks - three u bolts holding springs to rear axle housing may be letting the axle housing actually dip or tweak or all those thing in combination - now you may have some serious slop in the pig - transfer case may be causing that clunk - as far as high spped clunk and activity you have a serous problem and you just might drop the transferr case have an accident fliping over..............Mike South Bend Indiana don't just keep driving and making problem worst...........

SOURCE: brake lights only work when
You will need to readjust the small switch that the brake pedal activates.it is small,black and has two wires on it.A simple case of winding it out a bit.Follow the brake pedal arm up under the dash.push pedal in and out a little and you will see the switch and the point that it touches the pedal arm

the problem is caused by either a failed power brake booster vacuum diaphram or a loss of vacuum to the booster, most likely the booster is defective, if this is a diesel then check the enginge driven vacuum pump.
