It stopped pretty good, just the pedal had a lot of travel. The cure would have been switching to a M/C designed for rear disc in my case.
I would assume that you are using Explorer rear discs. What have others done when switching, if anything?
Is your truck equipped with a proportioning valve that is detrimental to you rear disc conversion?
Since repairing those leaks, bleed the system again. Then when you think it's good, bleed it again!
Oh, one last thing. Post a pic of your rear calipers, with the bleed screws in the pic. Post two if you have to.
im using the mustang hardware, its all stock gt parts. a number of people have done it with no problems.
i fixed the leaks, bled it then bled it again with no change. if it had been stopping well i would have lived with the soft pedal.
i have the stock drums back on now and the pedal is back where it was and i have the battery disconnected to reset the code to see if it comes back.
im thinking im just going to stick with the drums and sell the disc parts.
