Is master cylinder bad? I unhooked vacuum line to booster (it has power booster) and it has suction.
Are all the calipers free. New pads wont help if the calipers cant squeeze them. How did the old pads look. Were they worn evenly or was the inboard pad worn a lot more than the outboard pad. Uneven wear indicates a caliper that is not sliding on its pins
