Re: poor brakes

its possible that your master cylinder is leaking, have a look between it and the booster for fluid or have you noticed the brake fluid level has deminished lately? USUALLY a loss of assist will give you a hard pedal, but i did say usually, ive seen some strange things happen

Lets go find that Hotdog tree I planted

Nah that would make the pedal harder.

He's probably got leaky resevoir to master cylinder bushes. I had the same thing.

Get someone to pump the brakes while you look under the resevoir you will probably see fluid pissing out everywhere.
