    I have had a heck ova week, first I smoke a front wheel bearing which locked the front wheel up, and then sheared my axel shaft in half because I was in 4x4. It messed up all kinds of stuff, I needed a new hub, Spindle, axel, bearings... wheew anyways Just before all of this non-sense, my brake pedal began to get soft and continually got worse it now does nothing until it hits the floor..... I checked the fluid and it is full, and I couldnt find any leaks, all of the lines are new. I was wondering what are the smymptoms of a bad Proportioning valve or a brake booster????

    Usually when the pedal doesn't hold and slowly drops to the floor it is the Master cyl. loosing it's pressure!
    Good luck with the fron end rebuild!
