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.

Sounds like a bad master cylinder

could be heat from seized caliper collapsed the stock brake line. thats why everyone buys stainless steel lines.

oh... the booster... not the master cylinder.... sorry LOL! How did fluid get in there!?!?

At least its tranny fluid in the brakes and not brake fluid in the tranny...

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

Rubber line collapsed.

The rubber lines brake down from inside out act like a one way valve!
