    Question Brake Fluid Flush

    Hey..has anyone had a fluid flush done that made a difference in the pedal feel?? This 03 makes me long for my old 84 C 10 with manual brakes and '3 on the tree'..

    Thumbs up Use a high performance brake fluid

    If you want that hard pedal feel, nothing beats manual brakes. The pedal feel of my 93 is a bit soft when I mash the brakes, but with the abs, it stops great! There is a difference in the quality of fluid and old fluid should be replaced every couple of years. Look for a high performance glycol based fluid like the one from Motul. There is some great info on brake fluid at: afcoracing
