So, I went ahead and bled the brakes. Got myself one of those cool Motive bleeder kits while I was at it since I have future projects on my other cars and I'm always by myself working on the vehicles. Worked like a champ! Anyways, I did get some air bubble to come out and the pedal feels firmer. I honestly don't remember what it felt like before all of this as the change was minimal, just noticeable.
Question: How much do you all unscrew your bleeder screws?

Another follow up on this. Even though things were better after bleeding I still felt it wasn't quite right. I had the front wheels off to change my shocks and decided to pull the pads and have a look-see. Nothing seemed wrong, so I just put them back on. But when I test drove the truck the brakes had a good firm pedal feel. Not sure what changed, but I'm very pleased that it did.
I had my recall work done a year ago, but now it is squealing. Any ideas. Replaced caliper and rotors all around.

Replace your rotors with the Powerstop Z36 kit, it is a cheap upgrade and you *shouldn't* run into that issue again as long as the rest of your brake system is working as it should.
