i like having the abs, especially on something like mine that weighs as much as a bus. ive been fighting my yukons 4whl abs since i got it, pretty much got her figured out. ive replaced almost everything but the abs unit itself, but when ever you goto bleed it you have the same issues again. i got a couple tips from an old chevy mechanic on tighten up the rears all the time, turning the key on while bleeding, then go out on a dirt road adn jam on the brakes a few times, then repeat. that got as much feel as it ever had.

hm no this truck had some stupid little hold off valve type deal. supposed to make it so the back brakes engage After the fronts to keep them from locking up and it had issues so the pedal was soft like it was full of air but i ran a big bottle and a half of fluid through it so it had to go and now they work great

I attempted to put them in today, but after blowing the fuse for my turn signals and park lights, burning my thumb on the old bulb, and spending an hour and a half in the freezing cold rain only to find out one of the bulbs has a bad connection, I gave up. Its supposed to be sunny on saturday, so I'll probably try it again then.
