Anyone else on here have any solutions for fixing really spongy brakes? I am slowly leaking brake fluid, so I have a feeling I may have an air bubble somewhere, any ideas? Do I have to bleed my lines this soon, or can I wait? Thanks.

I too have a spongy brake problem I am trying to solve. I have replaced the master cylinder, and all the brakes are brand new, I mean everything from the new Stainless Braided Rear Line, New Front Hoses, and all new parts (calipers, pads, drum parts, wheel cylinders, etc,etc.)
However, the "in-frame" headers on my 360 are touching the brake lines near the equalizer, and I think it is boiling the brake fluid when it is running, making air bubbles. I'll be installing Fenderwells next...it's not good to have your headers on your brake lines anyway <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]" src="eek.gif" />
