I would bet your peddle problem is because your stock MS has a larger bore than the disc brake Explorer master.

What pistons are those? I have never seen ones with ring lands like those.

I may have to try a different master then, would like to get the firmness and stopping power back.

The piston are the stock hyper eutectics from a 93 mustang. The gray is a coating to build up the skirts.

Yep that's all I know about them! Thankfully they are still in good shape so I have never had a reason to change them.

I did a quick look or rockauto for fun and the 96 explorer the parts are from shows a master cylinder bore of 1 1/16th of an inch while the stock master for my truck is either 15/16 or 1" diameter.

Yeah that sounds right. I was confused...I had manual brakes on my mind. Rear disc will require more fluid volume over the small drum brake wheel cylinders

That makes sense. The masters on Rockauto are only 25 bucks so I think eventually I will swap it out and see if that helps.

Okay little update. Spent the weekend working on the truck again. Removed the valance piece between the grill/head lights and the front bumper in order to repair a bunch of rust spots and use it as a test piece to verify the paint code for the truck. I got it all bumped out and painted earlier today but its dull since there is no clear coat on it.

Started sanding down my new bed cap to get it prepped for paint. Have it all wetsanded down and ready to go but the pine tree next door decided to puke on it so have to hit it with some grease and tar remover tomorrow, and hopefully lay down sealer, base and clear tomorrow night.

And a couple of pictures after a whole lot of buffing today. Started with a wash and clay bar, then used Meguiars M105 and M205 followed by Mothers Reflections. Came out great and uber shinny.

Yep that was my truck. I dropped it off yesterday morning before my wedding so I could get it aligned. I knocked the toe out on it at the Dunes last weekend.

The alignment runs 40 dollars, I have not seen the truck on 15, but there is another Gen 2 4x4 with a cap on grosebeck for around 2,000 that is rust free.
