    Brakes issue

    Had a clunking sounds for a while now when i brake most of the time. Sounded like top arm or something similar
    Replaced all of the 8 front arms, drop links, tie rod ends. Just replaced the CV joints today also.
    Still got the click/clunk when i brake. Would say its when i am almost stopped and it seems if i put my foot one the brake and hold it there it sinks slowly to the bottom.
    Caliper issue or Servo?
    Cant see any leakage and not using fluid
    Are the bake pads the wrong ones?

    I have had issues with wrong parts. The CV joints for example were wrong from Europarts and they say its an oddball due to its year
    53 plate

    Going for 4 wheel tracking next week as i have some holidays to take, not sure this will fix anything though

    A sinking pedal would lead me to master or slave cylinder issue.

    Would you think this would also make the calipers stick maybe? Hence the clunk

    I'm really not sure. Seized calipers are just that, not usually related to a master/ slave issue. But with cars you never really know.

    sorry I can't be more help on this.

    Cheers...

    I'm now guessing it might be the master cylinder and the clunk i can hear is that. I have read somewhere on here that they tend to rust when water gets trapped and maybe its this i can hear or worn rubbers making the cylinder clunk

    Well just found that i have a leak somewhere... My red brake light just flashed on screen for a brief moment. Checked the fluid level and its down to minimum. Maybe a caliper with a leak
