Brakes

2003 V6 Mustang, had front calipers sticking. Took care of that with new calipers, brake pads, turned the rotors. Now the brake pedal seems to go farther down than before. I realize that both calipers, before the fix, were sticking, but now they feel quite inadequate. Is this the nature of these 4 wheel disc brakes ? Is there any fix that will not add to the already expensive fix ? It does run a bit faster, if you can say that about a stock V6..Any help with this would be appreciated. I am getting ready to sell and just want to make sure it is safe. Thanks in advance.

Make sure that you bleed all four calipers. Air could have gotten in the system and caused a weak pedal

Re: Brakes

^^^that's what I was going to ask, whether you bled the lines.

It could also be the new pads...I remember my brakes feeling similar after I put my new pads on...after they broke in everything seemed to feel normal again.

Also look into the break in procedure for discs... It helps keep your rotors from heat warping
