Unhappy I need more help please

I finally got another engine put into my Bonnie but after sitting for about 8 months all the brake fluid had leaked out. I filled it back up and even when I pumped on the brakes the brake pedal still goes all the way down and all the fluid leaked out again. Can someone tell me what I should do or what it can be? Also my front driver side tire makes a sound like a basketball bouncing someone told me I need to replace the hubs and someone else told me it was the struts. Please help I still haven't been able to take her on the road yet.

Well, first you need to find where the brake fluid is leaking from. Then we can tell you what needs to be done.

Rotate your tires, does the sound follow the tire, or is it still on the front. If it follows the tire, then the tire is bad.

Start by looking under the car for the puddle of brake fluid. Right above that will be a hole in the brake line. The car is very unsafe to drive with a bad brake line, because you will have none or limited braking.

Once the brake lines are fixed (I pluralize it because the moment you fix one, another will probably blow out), then we can help with the tire. Most likely it is out of balance.

I'm with Bill. Get those brakes fixed first. Then we can proceed to your other issue.
