    Ok so a while ago I picked up a 1968 fastback. The previous owner (or somebody) didn't like the parking brake so the whole assembly and cables were removed. I managed to pick up an aftermarket parking brake assembly and all the linkages for a V8 from CJ's. I've seen plenty of undercarriage...

So then my brakes were solid then became spongy and would slowly go to the floor when engaged..i then tried bleeding the master and only did the front i cant recall if...

    Hey guys, I am experiencing some really loud squeaking when I'm driving. It stops when I apply the brakes and come to a full stop but starts right back up as soon the wheels start moving again. I'm thinking wheel bearings/balljoints/tie rods but seeing as how I am having no general steering...

    Had my 2005 GT in the garage while I was deployed. Had to replace the battery; while doing so, set the parking break, now the rear breaks won't release. Anyone out there have any ideas what might be the issue? Thanks!

    I have a 1964 1/2 coupe that started life as a basic base model; 6-cylinder, 3-speed, manual brakes, no power steering, etc. It now has a 302, C4 automatic, 9-inch rear, 4-wheel disks, power brakes. The car runs and stops fine, but the brake lights seem to come on a little late. I am assuming...

    I recently purchased a 96 conv. 3.8L V6. My 15yo son loved the car with the color combination and it will be his. I am using the car for school for the next few months so it is a daily driver right now. We are looking to redo this car together. The front end is loose and we are looking to start...

    Hey guys, okay so on my 08 V6 automatic coup, Ive had this sorta popping sound when I apply the brakes. It happens really random and I know its coming from the front I thought it was coming from the driver side front so I changed the brakes on that side since I changed them like 3 weeks ago. And...

    So, I'm very new to the whole "fixing my own car" thing, but I've decided to take up the new hobby after taking my car to the shop and being quoted nearly $1000 for some (semi extensive) brake work. Here's my story in a nutshell before I ask my question: My car has been making this awful...

    After 20 years of basically sitting in a garage (operated once or twice a year for a few miles), I'm finally going to make the car a daily summer driver. Of utmost concern are the rotting TRX tires. I just want to confirm that the following package will work with my completely stock car: Part...
