Here's one for you brake guys.
Will worn rotors cause a low pedal? I'm not talking about warped or scored rotors, I'm talking about the rotor thickness dimension being reduced. I'm not talking about a soft pedal, I'm talking about a low pedal.
What do you think?
Because the caliper fluid volume is relatively large, any extra clearance between the piston/pad and the rotor translates into an increase in pedal travel.
Just to give an example of what Cobalt said about travel, my Excel brake calculator shows a 15/16" bore master cylinder at full stroke (pedal to the floor) will move each of my GM Metric front calipers 0.087". That's less than 3/32 of an inch!
I ran into a "low pedal" problem on a 1969 Cadillac. It had drum brakes all the way around. Turned out that the drums had been turned too many times.
