Should my brakes be so hard to push?
Seems like my dodge is hard to stop...ie....When I stomp on the brake it is hard to press
and the truck slows down, but it takes a while. Is this normal?
Make sure the vacuum line(s) have not come off of the booster
Vacuum booster could also have failed.
Look for any evidence of Brake Fluid entering the Booster that could be the cause of its failure. Doesn't always happen but sometimes it does. Just take a look under the dash at the brake rod and under the hood where the Master Cylinder bolts up. I like to remove the Vacuum valve and stick a long wire-tie to the bottom to see if it comes up wet.
