You lost the power booster. Look at master cylinder (where you put brake fluid in) and behind it is a large, black, round module. There should be a big vac hose going into rubber bung on it. See if hose came out of bung or came off motor connecting point, or hose shot. If hose still OK and you hear loud hissing when brake on - then booster failed inside. It is large rubber plate that wears out. Either way when the hose off, or hissing when brake on, engine will run bad from loss of vacuum.

Why is it so hard to apply brake pedal?

_______power brake booster, check vacuum to booster and the check valve for brake booster. primary symtom is high hard pedal that requires greater then normal pedal pressure to stop car. testing booster= pump brakes several times with engine off to deplete stored vacuum. turn on engine with pushing slightly on brake pedal. you should be able to feel the pedal fade away a bit, and then become firm. But not hard. if you feel nothing at the pedal when engine starts. Brake booster is not working. Good-day! make sure vacuum is going to booster with engine running. it may just be a bad vacuum line or check valve.

1996 camaro keeps hitting the ground

most likely you have bad shocks. With the car sitting level, push down on the back bumper hard and then let go. If the car comes back up and then down again, the shocks are bad. You may also have bad springs but most likely you have at least one shock that is flat.

I have a 1984 camaro an everytime i press the brakes its real hard to press

Check your vacuum booster control unit its on the fire wall in front of the steering wheel the master brake cylinder is mounted to it . Its vacuum opperated off the engine vacuum and is what gives you power brakes Look under it on the fire wall see if there is brake fluid on the wall also check the connection to the vacuum hose that comes from the intake manifold for leaks its a large hose 1/2 inside dia .It could also be leaking inturnaly witch it would be harded to tell but this is your problem you can pick one up at a junk yard for 20 dollars or so

Door panel 1984 camaro

Yes that whole plate needs to come off. Be careful as some of those torx heads are just for show and not actual screws. The door handle also needs to be removed. There are three screws for the handle, usually a torx head. The door panel will then unclip and with the window down you can push in and pull up gently on the upper door trim (hard plastic part) to release the door panel from the door.
