    Ok I just got all My new brakes on. New rotors front and rear. New calipers and pads front and rear(caddys on the back). I used a power bleeder and got all the air out, and of course used new dot 3 brake fluid. It stops but I have to put the pedal clear to the floor and there isn't much pressure. So what's the problem /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif This is not the first time I have done brakes either. It is My first time with the rear disc though.

    Did you gut the proportioning valve? If not do that.

    Do you have the bleeder screw pointing up? You may need to take the caliper off to bleed it depending on whose disc bracket you have and how you have it mounted.

    "caddie calipers"
    Did you adjust the rear calipers?Did you reconnect the e-brake to the e-brake levers on the Caddie calipers?

    If the e-brake cable is connected push the e-brake pedal to the floor a few times.This will "mechanically" bring the pads as close as possible to the rotor.Taking up any slack and will help firm up the pedal.
