i have a 1996 dodge ram 1500 4x4 and I noticed that my brake pedal was getting down a bit, I replaced the front brake pads and then I noticed that I had a broken brake line to the rear. I replaced the line and the rear brade shoes, still no brake pedal, I then replaced the master cylinder, breed all the lines and the master cylinder, still no brake pedal. Now I'm lost. What do I check next?

    I would closely inspect all of your brake components for leakage, including your rear wheel cylinders. You need to check your ABS system for codes. Then you need to really bleed out your system. You may need to put your brake system in a special bleeding mode as well.
