hello all ,

SO I recently replaced both front calipers with rebuilds , rear calipers seemed to have been working correctly . I then bled the whole system start back passenger side and working closer as I progressed. Here is my problem seems the driver side front and rear brakes are working ok but the passenger side aren't working as well . I am almost certain air in the system isn't the culprit , have any other ideas to help me narrow down the issue ?

Thank you all

i will tell you that when you bleed brakes, you need to work from the farthest point up to the closest. the drivers rear is the furthest. not as the crow flys, but if you follow the brake lines back, theres a T by the passenger side and then another 3 feet or so of brakeline to the drivers side. bleed it again in the correct order and post back

Hurricane is correct. The drivers rear is the fartherst from the master clyinder, then passenger rear, then passenger front. And last the drivers side front.

re-bled them again today , yesterday was the alternator switch out ( fun ) . Seems to be the same issue , no worries I plan on doing a brake upgrade after I get some bigger rims . I think that will cure all my Brake ailments

Thx
