    I put new brake hardware all around on my truck lately except for drums(they were fine).

    Im pretty sure I had rear brakes adjusted right the first time but I was still getting too much pedal travel.

    So after double checking I replaced leaking rear left wheel cylinder, then bled the brakes all around.

    Pedal was still goin way to far so i bled to the master cylinder: no change at all :mad:

    Well i said wtf is it then?? It ended up being the rear brakes had to be readjusted!!! (I did that the first time :dunno: )

    low brake pedal is one of 2 things if you've only had the rear brakes apart. misadjusted shoes, or air in the lines
