New rotors? Rotors rotating in a straight line or could they be wobbling?
Did you clean and grease the parts the pads slide on? Also did you grease the
caliper bolts? The pads could be binding and not staying fully flush against
the rotors which creates an air gap and a longer throw of the pedal.
Special brake grease!
Did you flush the brake fluid too? It is not a good idea to force the dirty
brake fluid back towards the master as you retract the brake caliper pistons
back in. That fluid should be expelled out of the bleeder while the brake hose
is carefully clamped.
DOT 4 brake fluid!
Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way,
when you criticize them, you are a mile away from them, and you have their
shoes. Frieda Norris
