Wheel Cylinder??

I was driving thru town and noticed that my brakes were really spoungy (worse than what they were before). Pulled into a parking lot and looked at the fluid level, was about gone. Looked at the front brakes no leak, looked at the rear, was leaking from the pass side right at the bottom of the drum. I toped the fluid off and drove home. I tryed using my breaks a little as possible.

My question is, if I let it sit all night will the fluid level go down? I dont know if it will b/c their wouldnt be any pressure.

Any info will be great.

Probably. I know mine did.

Have fun with it though. Mine was a pain in the ***, it took me most of the day because my lines were seized. It really isn't that hard though, as long as you anticipate the speed bumps and things that can go wrong, your fine.

They are cheap enough just to do them both at once. That what I did, because I figure if I nip it in the butt, I am not going to have the problem for a while.
