HELP! MY BRAKES

i just had my rear wheel cylinders, some brake lines, the master cylinder, and rear shoes replaced. when i got it back (about two days ago) the brakes felt awsome. but today when i was driving i went to press the brake pedel and noticed that the pedel was much higher and harder to reach than before, but the brakes still felt solid. i stoped to investigate and noticed that the rear of the master cylinder (where the push rod goes in) was leaking when the pedel was released. what the heck could of happened?the only thing i could think was mabey the c-clip that holds the piston in came off, but i can't tell without removing the master cylinder. any ideas or thoughts on the problem would be much app.
thanks

Re: HELP! MY BRAKES

Sounds about right to me. Not good, assuming these are not power then be carefull when you pull the master cylinder off because you are going to have a bunch of fluid coming out inside your Jeep. I would take it back to whomever did the job and tell them to make it right and use a NEW master cylinder. Don't drive it that way, if that piston comes out you are in a world of ****!!!!

More power is never enough
