Just put new hawk pads and rotors on my 2003 F250 initially the brakes worked fine but now the pedal starts out firm and fades then firms up. Also seems to loose power steering very intermittently while braking. Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance Mike

Have you ever flushed out your power steering system?

Edit**
Yes that's normal and what should happen! That's part of why I said it's an important fluid to maintain, yet always gets overlooked, even though it's stupid easy to do.

Your PS system is the source for your power brakes via the hydroboost.......so a good clean PS system now gets you better braking.
