    I have a 2003 3500 4x4 with a dump body on it. my problem is the brakes seem soft or spongey like they have air in the system. I have replaced the master 3 times, the front calipers, all the pads and I have bleed the brakes exstensively. The brakes are barely able to stop the truck when its...

    I recently had a lift put on my '08 GMC, and now the front brakes are constantly squeaking even when I'm not applying the brakes. It seems like there is always pressure on the front brakes. I have to make a trip tomorrow and would appreciate any help.
