the thing is that after so many tests this expedition still has very bad braking, it's simply dangerous and I can't find the problem, it's got new Ford pads and rotors, the ABS was tested by the ford dealer who also cycled the valves to see if one was sticking, but same thing, I'm suspecting some sort of restriction somewhere, even at the abs unit itself, so I think a pressure test should be done

I have considered using a smaller master cylinder but this truck has some odd 18mm fittings that no other car/truck seems to have, I wanted to use one from a explorer but didn't fit, sure I'll find a way if I must but I want to test the pressure as a final resource.
