    Without going into the details, I'm curious about this.

    I've seen people say "10psi will blow your seals" and other people say "15-20 is reasonable." However, many of these are people with BMW's or other weird cars which in many ways do not resemble our trucks.

    I have empirical evidence on my workbench that 5psi is NOT enough for a typical Blazer-ish system, and 7-8 is workable, but I'd like to know if anyone can declare a reasonable, safe limit for brakes like ours.
