    My LC seems to have a soft brake pedal...meaning when I step on the pedal it falls +/- 2 inches before it starts stopping?

    Where should I start first...I have checked the fluid level, which was ok....

    NSP,
    Is this truck new to you or have you had it awhile and now the pedal seems soft?

    Start by flushing the brake fluid and replacing with fresh Valvoline synthetic brake fluid, assuming everything else in the brake system is OK (pads, rotors, calipers, lines.)
