Brake question

Hi everyone,

I bouhgt my truck a few months ago and when I press the brake pedal it will travel aways before it sarts to stop. I needed new brakes and I thoght it would help, so I had les schab put new pads on, it still had the travel. Can the peedal be adjusted? It looks like it can be. after the travel the brakes feel fine. It looks like the booster was replaced before I bought the truck so thats why I was wondering.

thanks,

mike

Do you have rear shoes??---if so they are probably out of adjustment--believe if you do this you will be rid of ex-cess pedal travel---bobr19
