How do you make a car's brakes more sensitive when you push the pedal?

I just installed brakes onto a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravada. Now it does not make any noise and stops fine but you have to push the pedal just a little more than what feels right. I would like the brakes to react more to less of a push on the brake pedal. Please help!!! ThanksHow do you make a car's brakes more sensitive when you push the pedal?Did you make sure to fully bleed any air from the hydraulic lines? Top off the fluid in the master cylinder reservoir?

Some models feature a mechanical means to adjust pedal free-play, the amount of pedal travel required before the actuator rod is engaged. Sometimes its a matter of adjusting for the excessive travel of the rear drums, since they've worn, too, the 'star' wheel can be tightened some, forcing more hydraulic pressure resistance for your pedal feel.



Its likely one of these may fix your concern.

They will work themselves to a good position sooner or laterHow do you make a car's brakes more sensitive when you push the pedal?Do you have the right amount of brake fluid in it? Are you sure you got out all the air bubbles?How do you make a car's brakes more sensitive when you push the pedal?bleed the lines you could also put in a booster with a bigger spring but the problem is that when you do adjustments that are not standard to your car then you are looking at a lot more money to make adjusments on everything else. You could also adjust your linkage and put in a new master cylinder good luck if you need anything else email me.
