Default 98 Nissan Frontier XE King Cab RWD Brake issue

First time post! I bought my truck back in December for the dealership I work at. I am some what of a beginner to automotive outside of tires, oil, and basic repairs.. My brakes have given me a hard time. I have bled them 3 or 4 times.. replaced brake lines in the passenger rear yet still seem to be getting air in the lines. My next action is going to be flushing the system. Might anyone have any ideas where my problem could be? Very excited to become part of the community!

In which order are you bleeding the brakes?

The recommended order is:
  • Load Sensing Valve (LSV), for D21 Hardbody trucks - if equipped.
  • passenger rear
  • driver rear
  • passenger front
  • driver front

If you are doing that and still getting spongy brakes, you might have a busted brake booster.

Yes, but that's a personal problem that I'd rather not talk about on the open forum.

Thanks.

I would pull the drums and see if there is a wheel cylinder leaking.

The ABS Actuator test? Not really.



There are several pages to it in the Service Manual.

Here is the complete BRAKE section:
