    I have had my rear disc brake swap for about 4 months, and they are awesome. But recently my brakes got all soft on me, they were fine 1 day and the next squish and barely stopped unless i stomp on it.

    I dont think there is a bubble in the brake line since it was fine 1 day and not the next. I checked the brake fluid, it was full. I think it might be my master cylinder.

    Is there any ways to test it to see if its fucked up? Is this something that is normally upgraded during brake conversions? If so what is used? Should i buy another stock one or something else? :confused:

    Thanks in advance

    you might have a vaccum leak in the hose going to the master cylender. check if the hose is making a "ssssssssss" sound when the car is idiling and you step on the brakes.

    check for the leak but bleed the brakes also. No harm will be done by bleeding em.
