    Ok, so I am at a loss here. I installed a new steering rack yesterday, and when I finished I took it out for a drive. Everything was fine except the alignment was a little off. So when I got home I aligned it straighter and took it out again. This time when I took a left turn my brake went to the floor. I checked my lines and they weren't leaking any fluid and when I pumped the brakes a few times they went back to normal. I also checked the lines with the wheels turned all the way and don't see any binding. Anyone have any suggestions on what it could be?

    I don't know why it would do that, but I suggest you make like a UPS driver and only turn right for a little while.

    OK so here's an update, still have no idea what is causing it, but when I lifted the front and took wheel off it doesn't do it, then I put jack stand under control arm to put weight back on it and it does it.

    Well I found the problem, its just a coincidence that it happened right after changing the rack, the passenger side wheel bearing is shot and when turning the wheel it would push the caliper in.

    I might have to take you up on that, I just replaced it 2 days ago and the new one is already shot, don't know if its something I did wrong or if it was a faulty bearing.
