Why do you use front disc and rear drum brakes?
Front brakes provide about 70% of stopping force. Disc brakes have an advantage over drum brakes in that they can provide more stopping force without overheating (and thus loosing their stopping efficiency). I believe drum brake units are less costly to manufacture than disc brakes, so using them on the rear also saves manufacturing costs.
Why does the front chamber of brake master cylinder keep going down when the back stays full?
The front and rear brakes are a separate system on most vehicles since aprox 1968. One bowl feeds the front and the other bowl feeds the rear. You have a fluid leak somewhere, have it checked out. The front (usually larger) bowl supplies the front brakes, the rear bowl supplies the rear brakes. Check the front brake system for leaks immediately, these are your primary power for stopping. It should also be noted that front brakes, typically disk brakes, due to wearing over time will cause the fluid level in the front reservoir to drop. This will occur over months or years and is normal and acceptable as long as the level remains above minimum and below maximum. Any time sudden fluid level drops are experienced, a leak is indicated and should be repaired immediately.
