Question about Cars & Trucks
It sounds dangerous, frankly. If it were an artwork, and I was a critic, I would say you did a masterful job with the broad brushes. Now let a master complete the finishing touches.
The equalization of the brakes is all wrong. Normally, the front disc brakes carry the brunt of the braking force, and then the rear brakes will begin braking. I think the shaking is coming from maybe just one brake working? Did you bleed all four brakes, beginning at the rear? The clicking could be a rear brake out of adjustment, too.
I would let a shop do the finishing touches to get your brakes back perfect, and the abs working, if any problems in that. Nice job so far, though. Any relatives or friends could help you with those finishing touches? It's not rocket science, just experience or training.

You don't say what brakes.
I have had many cavys and worked on them. Great cars.
Your problem sounds like a **** rear wheel cylinder and bad drums/rotors and abs sensor wire.
My car just did everything you describe, I put in new wheel cylinders, drums, brakes, rotors, and 2 new rear brake lines. For less than 200 bucks the car is like new again and has well over 100k.
You can do it yourself. Doesn't take special tools. I followed online how-to's.

SOURCE: brake pedal has alot of
The air seeping is a dead giveaway. Your power brakes are now manual brakes, but stiffer. The diaphram in the brake booster has torn and the hissing noise is the engine vacuum escaping (you hear it louder when you depress the pedal right?). Replace the booster and you will be fine. The brake lights probably don't work because you can't push the pedal down far enought to release the switch. Please rate. Thanks.
