help - brake problem

Hey guys,
I've got a 92 F350 7.3 truck. And I am having some brake problems with it.

When I push on the brake it goes to the floor real easy and then stays there for a little bit, Then it will just come back up. And also, if I just tap the brake, it will go down a little bit and then come back up by itself.

I was thinking it's either the vacuum pump or the brake booster.

Any help would be great.

Thanks,
Norayah

My brake pedal squashed to the floor and i found out my front wheel bearings went out and the front brakes where the only thing holding the front wheels on! might check that out.

Dunno it was pretty weird! nothing acted wrong until the brakes went out then when I took my calipers off the front rotors pretty much fell off. hubs, bearings, seals an spindles where all toast! they didn't make any noise or any thing b4 that.

Yeah, I did. I even bled the brakes and still same problem. Another thing I noticed when I drove it today, is that when I was driving, every now and then the brake would just go to the floor by itself. So I would have to drive with my foot under the pedal.
