Sorry to revive such an old thread. I too have spongy brakes in my 06, and stumbled upon this mod yesterday and decided to give it a try. I adjusted the rod in increments as much as a full turn, with great success. The brakes were much more responsive, and I never felt brake resistance or drag while driving. However, after sleeping on it, I decided to jack up the front wheels today and see how freely they spin. It was only then, when I thought perhaps I had went too far. So I wrenched the rod back in another half turn or so. My headache over this, as others have mentioned, is I cannot "feel" what is too much or not enough. I have 33" mud tires, and they're heavy. They turn a full rotation if I give them a good spin, but then slow to a stop. So, is that "brake drag" or normal? I wish I had spun the wheels first before ever rotating the rod, but I didn't. So, I guess my question is, what's a normal wheel rotation on jacks, or rotor temp after driving, and what's an actual "break drag?"
