Brake problem 98 TJ
I have a 98 TJ Sport with brake problems. I have an extremey weak brake pedal. I have replaced the brake booster and have bled the brakes. The brake pedal gets a little stiffer when I remove the vacuum line from the booster, but still not great. When I remove the vacuum line, it has vacuum. Now with the new booster on, the pedal is slow to return to the up position also. Any ideas on what the problem is?

Really? No one has any suggestions?

Replace the vacuum lines. Usually when the line is clogged, a slow pedal return is the issue. Hope it helps.

What do you mean by "weak" brake pedal? If your saying the pedal feels soft or travels too far, it sounds like maybe the master cylinder or your rear brakes are way out of adjust.
