I funked something up.....

97 2.5 S.E. 2in coil spring spacers and 1in body lift. 33x12.50

So my Wrangler has had a problem with one of the calipers on the front to were it locks up and keeps pressure on the rotor. I replaced both calipers and new break pads and just for the sake of it the shoes in the back. After i got everything all done and was time to bleed the lines i worked for about 30 mins trying to get them to bleed. couldn't get them to bleed, so i went and bought a bleeder gun. Still no success. I am at a loss as to why i am not being able to create pressure in my break peddle. I think that some transmission fluid got into the break booster. I found the bottle sitting next to the jeep when i was done and had my friends helping me.

Get a power bleeder and suck all the contaminated fluid out. That sucks.

I have seen where a proportioning valve will give you fits.
