    Default F250 brakes

    The brakes on my 92 Ford F250 don't slide the tires when stomping on them. I have to give it a lot of room to stop. The master cylinder has been changed a couple of years ago. We replaced the brakes and wheel cylinders on the rear about a month ago. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Is there enough vacuum getting to the brake booster? Did you bleed the lines with the wheel cylinder repairs? Also has the brake fluid been flushed lately? Brake fluid will absorb moisture over time and should be flushed periodically (every two or three years). The most advantageous time to do this is with brake work.

    The brakes were bled on all wheels. The brake pedal is hard not soft
    The booster is working. We checked the space in the rear drums. The truck stops just not like skidding the tires.

    Maybe you aren't used to hard petal after all these years!
