97 F150 - mushy brakes, lots of travel.. where to start?
Guys, I realize this is more of a generic brake problem, but then again maybe it is "normal" for the model or at least a normal problem.
Just got a 97 F150 4.2. (no jokes please) The brakes work reasonably well, but there is a LOT of pedal travel before they activate. I can probably push the pedal 2-3 inches, and then there is a gradual onset of braking for the next inch - inch and a half or so... seems like all the braking happens in the last 15% of pedal travel.
Suggestions on where to start? I should note that pumping the brakes has makes no difference.
