Picked up a 1997 Chevrolet K1500 Silverado Z71 for my son a couple weeks ago. Seller said it needed brakes and shocks. Rode like a piece of crap and pedal went to the floor and was slow to stop.
Hauled it home and put new rotors, pads, calipers and hubs on the front, and new shoes and drums on the rear. Installed 4 new Rancho 9000 series shocks. Wow what a difference. Truck rides so much better and it will actually stop. Well sort of. That is where the 2 issues arise:
1. Pedal still goes almost to the floor. I did bleed the brakes all the way around. I cycled thru the pedal about 6-7 times on each wheel. Not sure if maybe I should have done more but there was no air coming out. I thought that was good. It will stop a lot better but there is still no pedal.
2. The brake light is on in the truck. Yes there is brake fluid in the reservoir. I tried setting and releasing the E-brake.
