The brake pedal on my dad’s truck has always bothered me. In this video I try and solve that and provide some helpful information if you ever need to replace a master cylinder. #DadsTruck

    Went through this with an 88 chevy Corsica, GM masters seem to fail in my experience

    Welcome back!! How bout the always-sad feel of the brakes on an old Subaru? (99 Leg OB) Lol the brakes are always so spongy on older model Subarus, doesn’t matter if they’ve just been done or not! I put an MC brace in mine & that helped a little...they stop well, just always have a “dead” feel at the top. Thinking new (stainless woven) lines at the next brake job. Thoughts? I know you own(ed) a legacy from the same era

    Maybe steal braided break lines can help a tad if changing the master cylinder doesn’t

    I have the same problem with my c Volt unless it’s engineered to be that way?

    How about if you have a hydraulic brake booster instead of a vacuum booster

    @ericthecarguy run a MC from an 02 Silverado......super common mod on the GMT400 forums. I'm going to do that, SS braided lines and calipers off from 98 Silverado 3500. The calipers and MC are all OEM parts and direct bolt on mods

    @ericthecarguy wondering if this would also apply to my 99 isuzu trooper? I know a lot of gm parts were shared... plus my brake pedal may as well live in a pineapple under the sea
