Brakes went out.....

Alright, so I just got my spindles on and the brake hoses are a little tight when turning (just temporary until I get new hoses). Pulled out of a parking spot and turned right, went to hit the brakes and the pedal went to the floor and the truck kept going. It only happens just after I turn real sharp (luckily it only happens while going slow). But I've had to stop with my E-brake 3 times now. There is absolutely no leaking from any hoses or connectors. Any suggestions as to what's happening?

turnin too far with some spindle pushes the caliper against the control arm. pushes all the fluid out of the caliper. then you hafta pump them back up.

steering limiters will fix it

Doesn't usually happen with Fabtech if you trim correctly or use their bumpstops. I had that problem with the Doetsch spindles I had before these Fabtechs that are on my truck now.

It's just as Gumby described. You'll need to eyeball it and trim or fab as required.
