    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?
    '13 FX4 Ecoboost w/appearance pkg/3.55/7200#-5* tune, UPR Mega Catch Can (totally worth it), Bilstein 4600s, Airlift 5000s, Helwig swaybar (get one), Weathertech flaps, Bakflip MX4 bed cover, wheel liners. CAC pee hole! The rest of my money goes to my '69 Mustang restomod coupe and my Roush-charged '08 Bullitt

    Umm... enough, but not too much. Maybe about 1/4 or 1/2 turn past 'sealed'.
    It's really not much.

    Yup..enough so it flows decent: too little and it takes too long to bleed, too open and air escapes back INTO the caliper from the loose threads. The Mityvac pump is the perfect tool for this. I'm glad the pedal feels firmer now. Enjoy!

    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.
