    Did you ever figure it out? I'm having the same problem. New Mc, new hydro boost, 2 calipers, new brake lines front, new pads and rotors front, adjusted brake light switch and bled the entire system.

    I'm also interested... have the same problem.
    Question: When you replaced the hydroboost, have you also replaced the spring between the hydroboost and the MC?

    Wow, no final answer on the problem?

    Unfortunately my GF's truck is going throgh the same problem...

    So her brother who is going to school to be a mechanic and graduated replaced her front disc pads. (01 1/2 ton extended 5.2)

    However she starts having braking problems. I find the reservoir empty, top it off and one of he bleed valve was either cross threaded or just completely coroded to the point that I couldn't loosen the valve.

    So I will buy a new caliper and go from there, because she lives so far away I can't easily work on it especially being the winter in Alaska. Have to find a garage/shop. Anyone in Anchorage, Alaska able to help a guy & girl out? I would provide the tools, just need a shop.
