Hello nico members.
Haven't been on in a while and decided to update an old post and start a new one. As some may know I bought my wife a white vert that she wanted.
Here's some background to the latest problem. We just did a 5 lug and Z32 front brake swap. Didn't use steal braided lines and kept the stock brake mater and booster. She liked the pedal feel compared to her friends 240; she had the same swap except had a z32 brake master. Everything went without a hitch, and for the past month had zero problems. Until last week we finally installed kyb's and lowering springs. Car looks awesome now but a couple of days ago she said her brake pedal felt super hard and when she pressed it again it went straight to the floor. She has to press the brakes very slowly... to slowly... to get the firm pedal stopping power she had before.
So I checked the brake fluid it was full. I jacked the car up to check for leaks under the car and against firewall... zilch. So we bled the brakes a few times. That fixed the prob for about a day. Then it happened again. I used the search bar and google ALOT, and have come to the conclusion the brake master might be going bad? Does that sound about right? From what Ive researched some people have had no problems leaving the automatic booster and master. If it works why fix it right? Any input or "go check" something would be great. Just wanted to run it by everyone before I spend money I don't have at the moment. (end of the month bills
Again she likes how her pedal felt so just commenting "upgrade to the z32 and be done with it" doesn't help.
Thanks in advanced
