I own a 1987 Cherokee 4WD and just replaced the power brake booster, master cylinder, front brake calipers, pads and turned the rotors. Also adjusted the rear brakes. Light braking seems to work fine but under heavy braking the vehicle doesn't stop well. The pedal isn't spongy, it feels normal but you must push the pedal past the booster assist range with significant pressure to stop quickly. Even then it requires too much pressure. Any thoughts?

Thanks very much for the help.

Mike

I've heard that there have been some problems with Bendix front brake pads...my 96 Ford Windstar minivan gave me trouble with that but not my Cherokee.

You could have replaced your booster with a later model, dual diaphragm one- supposed to help in regards with pedal pressure. I'll be trying this soon and will post the results.
