Have you read the guidlines before you post? I think not or you wouldn't be shouting. Go to your key board and depress the caps lock key and come back with a better discription of your brake setup. For instance disc/disc power assist so on.

Once I had a bad check valve on the booster vacuum line that caused the hard brake feel. I replaced it and the problem was solved. Have you checked the booster to see if it's working. Pump the pedal a few times and hold it down "with the engine off". Start the motor and you should feel the pedal go down slightly......that tell you the booster is good.

I had this same problem with my hot rod and it turned out the hole in the floor was not cut out large enough so the brake pedal could go all the way down. Pull your carpet back and with a good light check to see that the brake pedal, when pushed all the way down, is not running into the floor board.

HEY DESIGN: Hot rod made a good point! The geometry of your pedal movement may not be in line with booster and master cylinder. You could be pushing up and not straight. Study it a little bit and I hope you find answer. Don't take any chances with your safety on the road....DAVE
