Question about Chevrolet Suburban
After I finished the drivers side brakes, I got in the car, started it up and turned the wheel to the opposite lock to prepare to do the passenger side wheel. While turning the steering wheel I felt the power steering suddenly fail. Lots of what looks like brake fluid dripped out by the master cylinder. I assume this is from the pressure of pushing the pistons back to set the new pads. Brake performance and pressure are fine after changing both front pads. Fluid level looks fine in the master cylinder and power steering pump, but the power steering is dead. I assume it has something to do with the "hydro-boost" system that ties the brakes into the power steering pump.
Phil: you probably got air into the power steering fluid assist piston. Try driving your car. The air should bubble up, keep adding the correct power steering fluid.

You have air in your system, you need a helper to bleed the air out. The master cylinder is what ur brake fluid resivore is sitting on, the large round object behind it is the brake booster (looks like a squished basket ball) these will be on the fire wall driverside
