    Brakes are spongy after Line Lock install...

    I installed a SJM Line Lock on my Trans Am and now the brakes are spongy when the car is actually moving. They are very very firm when the car is parked, but when they actually have to stop the car, they don't work like they used to. My mechanic buddy helped me bleed the brakes and he said they were fine (sitting in the driveway), and if the line lock did not have fluid in it then the brakes wouldn't feel as firm as they do.

    Any suggestions, or am I not remembering the feel of the brakes in the TA (haven't really driven her since November)?

    Try bleeding them from the new line fittings... Might have to bleed a lot of fluid though the system to get the air pockets out...

    Bleed and bleed again. Most likely their is some air.
