    Question 2010 Chevy brake Issues

    Hey guys I have a 2010 Chevy Silverado and it has a soft brake pedal. It came with disk front drum rear. It only has 35,200 mile on the truck. The dealer tried to tell me it was the break fluid, and the rear drums. I find it hard to believe that it is the fluid and the rear drums. They said all the pads front and rear where good. They bleed the breaks making sure there was not air in the line. Why do i have a soft and long break pedal at 35,000 miles?

    My girlfriend has a 2007 Silverado with 83,000, no break changes, and her break pedal hits at the top. My parents GMC break pedal hits at the top. I am very confused

    My '95 1/2 ton 4 wd suburban has the same issue. Rear adjusters don't work for crap. I was GM service tech in the 90's and many of "anything GM with rear drums" were having issues while still under warranty. I bet yours eats front brake pads for lunch too. My rig weighs close to 6K unloaded and the entire brake system is less than h/d for that kind of weight. I put a spring kit on the rears...it helped a little but the pedal still gets crappy after a while and i end up crawling underneath and giving the adjusters 3-4 clicks. It's not a daily driver so it's not a big deal but running with the rears loose will eat a set of front pads in 10k driving around town.

    Well after a heated discussion with Chevy service tech,service manager, it came down to the rear drums. The service tech milled therear drums so the brake pads had more is area to grip. Right now I have a brakepedal that hits at the top when you push it down.

    As for eating front brake pad for lunch Im not there yet. But im sure I will soon
