Hi does any one no what problems EB's with ABS can have to make them spongey, even when im cruizen at 40ish, if i slam them on they dont respond properly they graduly slow the car down, ive had to stop driving it because it unsafe. They also make alot of noise, not squeeking more like and old creeky ship when im slowing down from 10-0 or rolling slow riding the brakes to stay ahead of the Auto. :(

If that was for me, :lol: i discovered that my front rotors were nearly off, the nuts were unscrewing, and my front left strut was snaped!! It was being held there by bird s**t.
But the rotors apparently were tilting when i braked, so it was not gripping im actually lucky to be alive i reckon anything could have happened with those problems! I have had a saftey check done now so shes all good, but man was i wrong about those ultratune adds!!! :oops: Also for the record TROYMAN was right, i did have air in my lines making it worse, thanks bud, if you didnt tell me i wouldnt have notice the front brakes & strut, then i guess death soon, so CHEERS!! :wink:
