Re: 1990 200TQW Brakes Feel Weird

I've done the bomb test with the car off on an incline in a local parking
deck.  Can can make 14 brake stops with the engine off.  I think this car is
just over sensitive.  The brake bomb is probably on it's way out, but I
figure it will be another year before it will really require replacement.

Brakes feel fine and pressure seems normal.  Occassionally I have to give
them a little pump before I hit them hard, but they work well.
