I got my car back I was surprised how far my pedal goes down
before the car slows or stops. I looked at the brake fluid reservoir and
it was at the low line. Is it my low brake fluid level causing this?
I don’t suspect it to be any other components because I have replaced almost the entire system recently.
I was also curious if anyone else was having this same problem.
I’ll top of fluid tomorrow but I’m still wondering what’s up with the brakes.
I topped off brake fluid helps, but still kind of a gradual stop.
You guys think SS lines and better pads might help.
Ok I remember this post, funny the things you come across searching. (It would be funny if I wasn’t pissed about my car)
Got in another accident so I revisited why the brakes suck!
I just finished installing
Drilled and Slotted Rotors
New Ceramic Pads on all 4
Flushed out the entire system a few times (fluid is clear now)
New SS break lines
Adjusted pedal height and free play
I did all this because the brakes suck! It doesn’t stop that well at all I’ve been in three accidents this year all happen because I need like 100 feet to stop.
Any thoughts on what else to do, brakes still not stopping that well, about the same as before
