    How can I tell if brake bleeding is complete?

    Installed new Stainless Steel lines, Hawk HPS pads, and Baer Eradispeed drilled/slotted rotors. I spent about an hour bleeding the four calipers with my father, and was getting clean fluid and no bubbles out of the clear vinyl tubing I was connecting to the bleeder valves. I finally put the car back together this afternoon, and drove it around a little. It seemed to brake alright, but I can still push the brake pedal all the way to the floor, and I don't have a very firm feel in the pedal. Also, the parking brake seems to not engage unless I yank it all the way up. Help?

    E-brake needs adjusted. There is an adjuster behind the rear calipers.


    If your pedal is soft and finds the floor...bleed more.
    Start at the rear passenger, then rear driver, then front passenger, then the front driver.
    You are probably very close. Just needs a few more pumps on each corner it sounds like.
