brake paddle feels too easy after pads and rotor change

Salty Soul Jeep Shirts


Hey all,

I’ve bought a 07 JK!

It needed new brakes and new rotors at the back. Easy Job, did myself.

However, the paddle feels too easy now. When the engine is off the paddle is very hard to press however when it’s on the paddle is kinda easy and soft and goes down easy. If I press on it quickly there’s resistance but if I do it slowly there’s less resistance. It almost goes down all the way to the floor. My Subaru does that too actually.

Took it for a spin, it brakes so good! So easy to brake now. But somehow the paddle does not feel right like in other cars. Just a bit too easy to press and stop.

Not sure what to expect, I haven’t driven the Jeep with the old brakes much.

What do you guys think?
