Re: Project: Minty Fresh

Ive driven down my road 3 times each way, and the whole thing is covered in dust. thats at 20 or less. It gets a lot of traffic and oncoming traffic blows by doing 60. It pretty much just sucks and theres no way around it.

So this things back on jack stands again. Left work tonight to pick up a buddy and as I was pulling out of the driveway the brake pedal was on the floor. Pumped it a few times and it would regain pressure. The brakes are nothing like they were before I messed with the brake lines, and the front end started popping out of nowhere. So I dunno.

Make sure none of your fittings have burs on them, and they're super tight.

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

dibs on spindles! its just a few issues from lowering it, that may take a lil thinking to remedy, no biggy. If you think that your bagged truck will have zero issues when you get it back together you may be in for a surprise though haha. If the pedal went to the floor it lost fluid (obviously), and that should be easy to spot as it should be pouring out somewhere. The popping noise is probably a bad sway bar/control arm bushing

Re: Project: Minty Fresh

Isn't there some kind of issue with the big blazer calipers hitting the LCA or something and causing the brakes to go out when the drop spindles are used?

I thought I've heard something like that

You have to trim the uca for caliper clearance. Which I did but it could probably use some more.

Bled the brakes with a vacuum pump. Pedal was super stiff until it got power and then to the floor, no leaks. Tightened up a trans line thats been leaking as well, hopefully its good. Painted my battery tray. I think im going to order a master cyl and see if that fixes it. my next day off is probably next tue or wed. We shall see what happens. But im busy with tests the next 2 days so I gotta run.

Yep.... I've heard that air can get trapped in the abs module, you can bleed it with a friend pushing on the brakes, then bleed the calipers as usuall (RR,LR,FR,FL) I had a similar pressure issue with my old avalanche, got pist off and just took it to the dealer. Cost me 80 bucks but it got done, they did a "full system bleed" oh, and one thing I noticed, they had the engine running the entire time. I've never bled brakes with the engine running before, but I know for a fact they did....

Ditch the vacce bleeder and do it te regular 2 person way....it's worth a try....


Also, if you do have some air in the and module, you may wanna try activating the abs system before bleeding. Go out to those gravel roads your always bitching about and stomp on the brakes a few times, then bleed. That may help also.....

ABS systems have a couple thousand pounds of pressure in them. Be careful.
