Question about 1992 Chevrolet Cavalier
We bleed the brakes, changed the master but still the peldal goes all the way so we got a new brake booster but dont know how to put it on what should we do?
You need to remove mastercylinder then remove power brake booster nuts on the firewall you have to work inside car look under dash where brake pedal located move carpet back enough to remove power brake booster mounting nuts.

Bad vacum or a bad master.... rotor and pad would have no affect on petal feel. never use used parts in a brake system, new or remanufactured only!!

SOURCE: BRAKE BOOSTER?
A bad brake booster will result in a hard brake pedal, stiff and more effort required to stop the truck. Here are my questions to you, first, you said you replaced the master cylinder, did you bench bleed it before you installed it? If not, there IS still air in it, regardless of how much you bleed the brakes at the wheels. Second, when you bled the brakes, after changing the calipers and master cyl., did you also bleed the proportioning valve? Sometimes air can get trapped in the valve, and its almost impossible to get it out bleeding just the wheels. And lastly, when the brake light comes on, does the abs light also come on with it? Air can also get trapped in the abs control module too.

you have to bleed all 4 brakes even if you only replaced the 2 , start with the brake farthest from the master cylinder, and work your way up to the closest one, which in your case would be passenger rear, drivers rear, passenger front, drivers front, make sure as your doing this, that the master cylinder never runs out of fluid, or you have to start all over
