    I have to press on my brakes, and then let up and compress again for it to get hard enough to feel like the brakes are working, does this sound like air in the lines? i am guessing i should bleed them, i have searched the topic, but if I have the fronts are rotors and the rear drums, what order should i do it and any special tips tools i need to do the job?

    start with the right rear, then left rear, then right front and then driver's front. all you need is the right size wrenches and a buddy to bleed them. have your buddy pump the brakes a few times and then hold them. while he is holding the brakes down. open the bleeder screw for a second or two then shut it and repeat until you dont' get any more air out of the lines.
