After helping my father flush his braking system of the old dirty fluid with nice new fluid to accompany all new shoes and pads on all four corners, I've noticed my brakes aren't nearly as firm. It's not like a sponge, and I hesitate to say my pedal is 'sinking', because it doesn't feel like I'm losing pressure.
They bring my Ranger to a nice halt every time without fail, but there's a moment during the pedal's swing where it feels like it's doing very little if anything at all.
I'd like to upgrade my braking system, but so far I can't justify much as my rotors and calipers are less than a year old. Can't complain.
So, what are a couple things I can do to firm up my brake pedal? Perhaps steel braided brake lines?
Also, it is worth noting that my brake fluid was changed around the same time as my rotors, calipers, pads, shoes, and cylinders.
