im curious, who makes the oem pads for the frontier?
sorry I have not been on the forum for personal reasons. I am reporting back that even after replacing all brake lines with SS lines, new rotors and pads front and back, new brake shoes for hand-brake, still mushy pedal. So I adjusted the brake cylinder lever inside the car above the brake padel. (mine is 2005 manual transmission). The padel was raised but after testing it for about 3 miles, the front pads were grabbing the rotors and truck started to bog down. So I backed out about 1/2 turn and the brake padel still mushy with little less travel.
i am going to replace the pads (all foour with oem this weekend) just to see if that helps
Any other suggestions?
do I need to disconnect abs before bleeding the brakes?[/QUOTE]
Did you ever get this question answered? I've never bled the brakes on a frontier, so I'm unaware, but some vehicles require specific steps to bleed or you will never get the air out properly.
With that said, have you tried bleeding the brakes with one of those mity-vac things? I've seen it once or twice ( usually after a master cylinder replacement) where standard manual bleeding did not get all the air out. once the mity-vac was put on it and some vacuum applied, it pulled the bubble out.No I did not here but elsewhere on the forum and on the net it states that you have to disconnect the plug to abs.
Sorry for the late response. I will bled them again this afternoon.
