Question about 1997 Chevrolet Suburban
The brakes feel like the anti lock kicks in and brakes sink almost to floor. Does not do it all the time. Replaced brakes and routers and back brake cylinders and that did not fix the problem. Some people say it sounds like there is air in lines also we've heard master cylinder I think possibly abs system but no lights are on.
I had the same problem with my 97 Suburban & replaced all the same stuff before i found out what really was wrong. it turned out to be a front wheel bearing. my abs would kick on at low speeds under 10 mph right before completly stopping. there is an electrical sensor in the wheel bearing that was malfunctioning creating the illusion the wheels were about to lock up therefore kicking on the abs. now all you have to do is figure out which wheel bearing is the source of your problems. if i were a betting man, i would stack my chips on this solution. good luck.
