    Its a 2wd. I just bagged the front and with the front end higher it seems to do it alot too. Just gotta wait until i get the back done then i hopefully can be rid of that problem, even though its not to often that it happens.

    yeah but you bagged it all the way around.....i drive with the front up a little and im low as hell in back with my blocks. when i get the back done i doubt it will have a problem anymore, specially with a better notch and more clearance.

    bad brakes

    I have a cert in brakes and i know what the prob is it did the same thing to my truck. what happend is when they put the spindles on they dident lock the rotor on correctly so there is play or a un noticable wobble well the residual pressure valve puts your caliper pistion agenst the pad and your pad right buy the rotor well when it wobbles it compresses the pistion so your peddel hast to push more fluid to make up for the lost distance hence the low peddel. its in concistant because of turning or bumpy roads and what not hope you can fix it

    you have to trim the upc because the bolt from the brake caliper hits it and cause it to lose pressure i had the same problem. I first relocated the brake linew but it didnt make any differenve. Just make sure you trim the upper control arm. VERY important.
    just turn your whell all the way to the left and right when its in the air and you can see where it hits, then just trim!

    I recently added Belltech spindles to my '01 Blazer and now I'm having this problem. At first I thought it was the brake lines being stretched so I bent the bracket out from the frame for more clearance and upon further inspection and testing found out that it was the caliper hitting the upper control arm and compressing the pistons.
