Question about 1998 Toyota RAV4
Is it hard to change out the master Brake cylinder ore is it better to riper it. If that is the problem ? I have already changed out brake disks & drums and bodes. And the brake pedal still kicks back when i step on the brakes. Sometimes it gets like almost stuck and stiff to when i brake. If it is not the master cylinder, what els can it be ?

It would be extraordinary for a technician to recommend a booster and a master cylinder with no previous mention from you of a possible problem in this area. In other words, the technician had no business looking at the m/cyl or the booster, unless you told him that your braking was deficient.
Here is what REALLY happened: Somewhere, I'd bet, your brake light came on, and somebody "topped off" the master cylinder, to shut the light off. Now, please understand that the brake fluid level in the master cylinder reservoir DROPS PROPORTIONALLY to the wear of the brake pads. When the tech replaced the front brake pads, he obviously had to squeeze the caliper pistons into the housings to allow the insertion of the new pads. This action forced the brake fluid from the now-compressed caliper pistons BACK into the master cylinder, and it sprayed out from under the cap, coating the cylinder and the booster. Tell that repair service that you do NOT need a booster and a master cylinder, THEY caused the problem with the fluid being everywhere. I am confident that I just saved you a significent amount of money that you do NOT need to spend. Have a great day.

SOURCE: remove stuck brake drum
you have to get a brake adjusting tool and a screw driver....
put the brake tool in and locate the adjuster wheel, use a screwdriver to release the locking prawl, its tuff but doable.
If there are no access openings to the adjuster, either in the drum or backing plate, then you need to work it off with a few pry bars
