An hour of labor 10 bucks for hose and brake fluid (they bled it) and tax. It was like 105 and change

I shot the **** with them for a while. He said I was probably alot closer than I thought I was.

It just doesn't feel like I thought it would is part of what's going on. It has alot of movement in the pedal and is pretty easy to push. Part of that could also be the dual diaphragm booster. Pedal doesn't feel like I had anticipated but it definitely stops.
That's great news glad to see it's fixed!

drove fine it seems!

Getting used to the pedal feel, but ask Terry. I stomped the brakes on nellis and he felt it dive, haha.

I ordered new shocks, monroe sensatrac up front, and sensatrac load leveling shocks in the back. Should help when towing the campah.

Picking up another $120 worth of brake parts tonight(new drums, shoes, hardware, adjusters, etc etc etc) to get this damn thing finished up.

May go on a lil trip this weekend!
